Pálfy proved that given a solvable group G and a set π of prime divisors of character degrees of G of cardinality at least 3, there exist two different primes p, q ∈ π such that pq divides some character degree. The solvability hypothesis cannot be removed from Pálfys theorem, but we show that the same conclusion holds for arbitrary finite groups if |π| ≥ 4.
