Abstract : Let $R$ be a prime ring of characteristic different from $2$. Suppose that $F$, $G$, $H$ and $T$ are generalized derivations of $R$. Let $U$ be the Utumi quotient ring of $R$ and $C$ be the center of $U$, called the extended centroid of $R$ and let $f(x_1,\ldots,x_n)$ be a non central multilinear polynomial over $C$. If \begin{align*} &\ F(f(r_1,\ldots,r_n))G(f(r_1,\ldots,r_n))-f(r_1,\ldots,r_n)T(f(r_1,\ldots,r_n))\\ =&\ H(f(r_1,\ldots,r_n)^2) \end{align*} for all $r_1, \ldots, r_n \in R$, then we describe all possible forms of $F$, $G$, $H$ and $T$.
