Default Child with motor development?

A baby that was apparently normal at birth begins to show a delay in motor development by 3 months of age. At one year of age, the child begins to develop spasticity and writhing movements. At age three, compulsive biting of fingers and lips and head-banging appear. At puberty, the child develops arthritis, and death from renal failure occurs at age 25. This patient's condition is due to an enzyme deficiency in which of the following biochemical pathways?

A. Ganglioside metabolism
B. Monosaccharide metabolism
C. Purine metabolism
D. Pyrimidine metabolism
E. Tyrosine metabolism

u re really good guys. Don't forget that treatment with allopurinol inhibits xanthine oxidase and reduces gouty arthritis, urate stone formation, and urate nephropathy in Lesh Nyhan disease. It does not, however, modify the neurologic/psychiatric presentation.
