Abstract: 

Lesch-Nyhan syndrome is one of the genetic disorders inherited as X-link mode. Its frequency is estimated to be one in every 100000 births. Severe deficiency of enzyme Hypoxanthine phosphoribosil transferase (HPRT) is the leading case of hyperuricemia, nephrolithiaisis, and devastating neurologic problems. Here we present a 30 year old man with chronic tophacious gout and multiple renal calculi since childhood. He had not tolerated the Allopurinol due to severe skin reactions. We claim this is the first reported case of allopurinol desensitization in Lesch-Nyhan syndrome.
