Laryngeal Disease


Presentation

  • The preferred embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail hereinafter with reference to the attached drawings. FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing a communication system to which the present invention is applied.[google.tl]
  • Problems with the larynx (voice box) generally present as hoarseness. Other common symptoms include Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), throat pain, chronic cough, shortness of breath, or the sensation of a lump in the throat.[subent.com]
  • Earlier recognition of minor laryngeal changes, as detailed in the text, should lead to earlier biopsy and tissue diagnosis, earlier and more enlightened public awareness, and earlier and, therefore, more effective utilization of present day day modalities[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Improve your interpretation of presenting symptoms with 38 new topics and 40 new images in the Differential Diagnosis section, and optimize patient care with more than 250 new figures and tables.[books.google.com]
  • Other conditions that cause chronic laryngitis should be included in the differential diagnosis, depending on the patient's clinical presentation.[nature.com]

  • Other common symptoms include Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), throat pain, chronic cough, shortness of breath, or the sensation of a lump in the throat. There are many laryngeal disorders that can cause these symptoms.[subent.com]
  • In addition to affecting speech, vocal cord paralysis can cause coughing and difficulty swallowing, as food or liquids may slip into the trachea (windpipe) and lungs.[azvent.com]
  • Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion May present acutely More commonly intermittent inspiratory stridor which resolve spontaneously Often occur when anxious or upset Sometimes precipitated by severe cough Usually female Often patient complains of obstruction[quizlet.com]
Hoarseness
  • Vocal granuloma inflammation ulcer granuloma etiology - intubation - gastroesophageal reflux - partial laryngectomy Symptoms - hoarseness 2-3 wk after extubation 35.[slideshare.net]
  • If hoarseness or any of the above symptoms lasts for two weeks or more, evaluation by an Otolaryngologist is essential to diagnose the cause of the problem.[subent.com]
  • Constant hoarseness while speaking is an early symptom of this type of cancer and hoarseness that lasts longer than three weeks should be evaluated by an ENT specialist (otolaryngologist).[azvent.com]
  • This can produce a hoarse voice, neck pain, neck fatigue, and even complete loss of the voice. In most cases the problem in muscle tension dysphonia (MTD for short) can be said to exist at the level of the neck or the larynx.[evms.edu]
  • Cancer most commonly occurs on the vocal folds causing hoarseness or shortness of breath. Some individuals may notice symptoms of increased cough and difficulty swallowing. Others may note a neck mass, throat or neck pain, or even ear pain.[throatdisorder.com]
Stridor
  • Paradoxical Vocal Fold Motion May present acutely More commonly intermittent inspiratory stridor which resolve spontaneously Often occur when anxious or upset Sometimes precipitated by severe cough Usually female Often patient complains of obstruction[quizlet.com]
  • Laryngeal trauma Most common -Car accident Others - athlete, penetrating, gun-short wound S&S location, severity - stridor, bleeding, emphysema, hemoptysis, dysphagia, crepitation - severe case coma 40. Laryngeal trauma 41.[slideshare.net]
  • In children, congenital laryngeal stridor is the most common cause of chronic stridor. What are the symptoms of congenital laryngeal stridor? The major symptom of this disorder is the stridor that is heard as the infant breathes.[stanfordchildrens.org]
  • What are the common causes of stridor in newborns? Stridor Noisy Breathing Anything that creates a blockage in the breathing passages causes turbulence in the passage of air, which then makes breathing noisy (stridor).[voicefoundation.org]
  • The vast majority, however, will only have stridor without other more serious symptoms such as dyspnea (difficulty breathing).[en.wikipedia.org]
Difficulty Vocalizing
  • Papillomas typically cause hoarseness in the early stages, and may progress to cause significant airway difficulties. Vocal cord cysts or polyps – benign (non-cancerous or life-threatening) growths on the vocal cords.[mottchildren.org]
Referred Otalgia
  • Carcinoma Symptoms 2-3 weeks - glottis hoarseness - supraglottis dysphagia - subglottis airway problems others - referred otalgia, chronic cough, hemoptysis, lymphadenopathy, wt. loss 38.[slideshare.net]

  • Allergy Workup CT Sinus scan (Evaluate for subclinical chronic sinusitis) Allergy testing (Evaluate for allergies).[fauquierent.net]
  • Evaluating the Patient The proper diagnostic workup for a patient with dysphonia should always begin with a through review of the history of the complaints, followed by a comprehensive physical examination of the head and neck region.[utmb.edu]
Streptococcus Pneumoniae
  • Acute laryngitis Pathogen - adenovirus, influenza Morexella catarrharis Hemophilus influenza Streptococcus pneumoniae Symptoms - hoarseness cough, /- fever, malaise Sign - TVC swelling 22.[slideshare.net]

  • Standard therapeutic intervention for LPR includes lifestyle modifications, medical treatment, and surgical treatment. PPI have become the treatment of choice even though conflicting results exist in their response.[tdj.eg.net]

Prognosis

  • Prognosis [ edit ] Laryngomalacia becomes symptomatic after the first few months of life (2–3 months), and the stridor may get louder over the first year, as the child moves air more vigorously.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • From What is the prognosis for patients with throat cancer? The prognosis or outcome for patients with throat cancer varies with the stage and location of the cancer.[medicinenet.com]
  • The prognosis for individuals with this disorder is poor.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Etiology

  • Although the reported findings are not specifically diagnostic of cancer of the larynx, they should draw earlier attention to the larynx as the etiological site of such symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • This suggests that differences in pathophysiology between LPR and GERD patients are part of the basis for the contrasting symptomology.[nature.com]
  • First, onset is gradual after which the disorder becomes chronic, suggesting some adaptation processes are involved in the development of the pathophysiology.[jneurosci.org]
  • The underlying pathophysiology is as yet poorly understood; however, the clinical scenario suggests a multifactorial nature to the disorder.[journals.lww.com]
