The neutron deficient 199At nucleus has been studied in the 175Lu+28Si reaction at $\rm E_b = 141$ MeV. In order to select events of interest in the presence of the very strong background caused by fission, $\gamma$-rays have been detected in coincidence with recoiling evaporation residues. The excited states of 199At observed for the first time may indicate that this nucleus is deformed.
