We investigate quantum corrections to the moduli space for hypermultiplets for the type IIA string near a conifold singularity. We find a unique quantum deformation based on symmetry arguments which is consistent with a recent conjecture. The correction can be interpreted as an infinite sum coming from multiple wrappings of the Euclidean Dirichlet branes around the vanishing cycle.
