This condition can be diagnosed prenatally by culture of amniotic fluid and estimation of the relevant enzyme.

Post-natal diagnosis is possible on a single hair root by assessment of reduced erythrocyte hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (HPRT).

There is hyperuricaemia, of about the same level as in gout.
