Abstract

This article reviews the evidence for the evaluation and management for patients with dysphonia. The evidence behind laryngoscopy, laryngostroboscopy, laryngeal imaging, laryngeal electromyography, and disease-specific questionnaires are reviewed. The evidence for management of some of the common conditions leading to dysphonia is also reviewed. This article reviews the evidence for voice therapy for various voice pathologies; medical management of dysphonia, including antibiotics, steroids, and antireflux therapy; and surgical management of glottic insufficiency and some benign laryngeal masses.
