In this paper, the author considers semilinear elliptic equations of the form \(-\Delta u- \frac{\lambda}{|x|^2}u +b(x)\,h(u)=0\) in \(\Omega\setminus\{0\}\), where \(\lambda\) is a parameter with \(-\infty<\lambda\leq (N-2)^2/4\) and \(\Omega\) is an open subset in \(\mathbb{R}^N\) with \(N\geq 3\) such that \(0\in \Omega\). Here, \(b(x)\) is a positive continuous function on \(\overline \Omega\setminus\{0\}\) which behaves near the origin as a regularly varying function at zero with index \(\theta\) greater than \(-2\). The nonlinearity \(h\) is assumed continuous on \(\mathbb{R}\) and positive on \((0,\infty)\) with \(h(0)=0\) such that \(h(t)/t\) is bounded for small \(t>0\). The author completely classifies the behaviour near zero of all positive solutions of equation (0.1) when \(h\) is regularly varying at \(\infty\) with index \(q\) greater than \(1\) (that is, \(\lim_{t\to \infty} h(\xi t)/h(t)=\xi^q\) for every \(\xi>0\)). In particular, the author's results apply to equation (0.1) with \(h(t)=t^q (\log t)^{\alpha_1}\) as \(t\to \infty\) and \(b(x)=|x|^\theta (-\log |x|)^{\alpha_2}\) as \(|x|\to 0\), where \(\alpha_1\) and \(\alpha_2\) are any real numbers.
