We use the method of preliminary group classiﬁcation to analyse a particular form of the nonlinear diffusion equation in which the inhomogeneity is quadratic in $u_x$. The method yields an optimal system of one-dimensional subalgebras. As a result we obtain those explicit forms of the unknown functions 𝑓, 𝑔, ℎ and 𝑝 for which the equation admits additional point symmetries.
