Lesch-Nyhan syndrome is an X-linked recessive disorder characterized by hyperuricemia, choreoathetosis, spasticity, mental retardation, and compulsive, self-injurious behavior. This disorder results from a complete deficiency of the purine salvage enzyme, hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyl transferase(HPRT). We report here on a case of Lesch-Nyhan syndrome in a 1-year, 7-month-old male who presented with frequent vomiting, failure to thrive, and developmental delay. The diagnostic...
