Özet

Lesch-Nyhan syndrome is a familial disorder of uric acid metabolism and dysfunction of the central nervous system. We present a patient with the syndrome, who had a defect of the left calcaneal tissue with osteomyelitis caused by repeated self-mutilation. The defect was reconstructed with a sural flap.
