Biochemistry Urea vs. Uric acid

I know in the heat of things we get these two mixed up - but Lets make sure we remember which is which for example, which accumulates in Lesch Nyhan syndrome or any other conditions...

I think Lesch Nyhan is Uric acid - can someone confirm? I get confused because OTC deficiency and hyperammonemia can also have neurological symptoms and I think those might be urea - am I wrong?
