We prove, assuming the generalized Riemann hypothesis for imaginary quadratic fields, the following special case of a conjecture of Oort, concerning Zarsiski closures of sets of CM points in Shimura varieties. Let X be an irreducible algebraic curve in C$^2$, containing infinitely many points of which both coordinates are j-invariants of CM elliptic curves. Suppose that both projections from X to C are not constant. Then there is an integer m [ges ] 1such that X is the image, under the usual map, of the modular curve Y$_0$(m). The proof uses some number theory and some topological arguments.
