A singularly perturbed convection-diffusion problem with a point source is considered. The problem is solved using the streamline-diffusion finite element method on a class of Shishkin-type meshes. We prove that the method is almost optimal with second order of convergence in the maximum norm, independently of the perturbation parameter. We also prove the existence of superconvergent points for the first derivative. Numerical experiments support these theoretical results.
