Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can cause hoarseness
, while chronic lung diseases, such as emphysema, can reduce the force of your breath.
DISCUSSION: The most common benign lesion of larynx presenting with hoarseness
is vocal cord polyp.
RESULTS: A total of 100 patients who presented with hoarseness
of voice were considered for this study.
CASE REPORT: We report an unusual case of acute severe breathlessness with hoarseness
of voice for one hour duration without any predisposing factors or any constitutional symptoms in a 31 year old female patient who presented to emergency department.
The patient elected to defer surgery because his hoarseness
was relatively mild and the tumor did not affect his swallowing.
of the voice that comes out of the blue without any other symptoms.
This produces hoarseness
, breathiness, increased phonation threshold pressures, decreased vocal efficiency and, commonly, voice fatigue.
We evaluated eight voice parameters: basal voice frequency at the glottic level (F0), jitter, shimmer, breathiness, harshness, hoarseness
, normalized noise energy (NNE), and S/Z ratio.
of the voice that persists for more than a couple of weeks could be the first symptom of a tumour of the larynx.
The difference between the prevalence of hoarseness
in the two groups was statistically significant (p = 0.
The patient subsequently developed moderate hoarseness
and, accordingly, the mass was resected en bloc using a transcervical approach.
A 36-year-old man, a rock signer currently on tour, presented with an upper respiratory tract infection and significant hoarseness
