Hoarseness of voice is a common disorder seen in day to day practice of Otorhinolaryngologist. Although,
occasionally it can be a symptom of underlying malignancy, there are a variety of benign lesions causing the same. We analyzed a total number of 100 patients with history of hoarseness of voice for at least six months in whom the cause of hoarseness was the presence of a benign vocal fold lesion. Malignancies, vocal cord paralysis and Neurological lesions were excluded from the study. We found that vocal nodules were the commonest benign mucosal vocal fold lesion, (37% patients); followed by vocal polyps in 26%, LPR 23%, Reinke’s edema in 4%, intracordal cyst in 4%, contact ulcer in 3%, saccular cyst in 2% and papillomatosis in 1% of the patients.
