Abstract

Acromegaly is a rare disease with vocal changes being a common clinical finding. The authors present a very rare case of an opera singer with undetected acromegaly for years, whose tessiture progressively changed from tenor, to baritone, to bass. We analyze the evolution of vocal parameters over the years and the outcome after surgical treatment.
