Answer questions and earn CME/CNE Laryngeal cancer remains one of the most common tumors of the respiratory tract. Fortunately, significant advancements have been made over the past decade in the treatment of laryngeal cancer. Although surgery has been the historical mainstay for localized disease and still is an integral part of treatment, nonsurgical options like radiation and systemic therapy have emerged as viable options. In addition, in the metastatic setting, novel agents are showing promise for this patient population...

BACKGROUND: Unilateral vocal fold paresis (UVFP) significantly deteriorates the patient's quality of life. The leading role in the rehabilitation of the patients presenting with UVFP belongs to stimulation therapy which consists in the activation of muscle re-innervation of the larynx and the compensatory mechanisms allowing to achieve the most complete closure of the vocal folds during phonation. AIM: The objective of the present study was the optimization of the conservative treatment of patients with UVFP...

INTRODUCTION: Behavioral voice therapy guided by a speech-language pathologist is recommended as the main treatment approach for many kinds of voice disorders. Encouraging evidence regard of good outcomes from voice therapy has been found in two previous reviews on broad patient populations. However, no definitive conclusion on the effectiveness of direct voice therapy can be drawn from these reviews due to limitations of the included studies. AIMS: To review recent literature on voice therapy; to provide clinicians with a list of evidence-based voice therapy techniques; to incorporate the therapy components in a physiologically based model; to assess the limitations and progress achieved in the recent research on voice therapy...

Objective The basal ganglia are a group of structures that act as a cohesive functional unit. They are situated at the base of the forebrain and are strongly connected with the cerebral cortex and thalamus. Some speech disorders such as stuttering can resulted from disturbances in the circuits between the basal ganglia and the language motor area of the cerebral cortex. Stuttering consists of blocks, repetitive, prolongation or cessation of speech. We present a 7.5 -year-old male child with bilateral basal ganglia lesion in globus pallidus with unclear reason...

Carson Schlich, Frank Romanelli
Testosterone is derived from Leydig cells and exerts its effects on androgen receptors to influence growth, mood, voice, and several other bodily functions. As men age, their testosterone levels decline. Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection has also been associated with lowered serum testosterone levels. Subtherapeutic levels of testosterone may lead to fatigue, loss of libido, and dysphoria. Exogenous replacement of testosterone can be accomplished by several modalities (oral, topical, injection), with each having distinct advantages and disadvantages...

OBJECTIVE: The effect of botulinum toxin among patients with adductor spasmodic dysphonia (AdSD) is temporary. To optimize long-term treatment outcome, other therapy options should be evaluated. Alternative treatment options for AdSD comprise several surgical treatments, such as thyroarytenoid myotomy, thyroplasty, selective laryngeal adductor denervation-reinnervation, laryngeal nerve crush, and recurrent laryngeal nerve resection. Here, we present the first systematic review comparing the effect of botulinum toxin with surgical treatment among patients diagnosed with AdSD...
