Lesch-Nyhan syndrome (LNS) is a rare congenital (at birth) disorder that affects a child's brain and behavior. A key symptom is engaging in uncontrollable self-injury, including lip and finger biting or head banging. The disease causes a buildup of a natural waste product called uric acid in the body.
