Abstract Advancing age produces physiologic changes that may alter voice. Some of these changes are inevitable; others may be avoidable or reversible. In addition, many treatable medical conditions may cause voice changes similar to those of aging. It is essential that all voice care providers be familiar with the expected changes of aging, and be alert to reversible conditions that may adversely affect phonation and be mistaken for presbyphonia.
