Keywords:Vocal Cords, Dysphonia, Hoarseness, Dyspnea
Breathy dysphonia and inspiratory stridor due to paradoxical vocal cord movement is the characteristic feature of this rare disease. Here we present a case of a young 20-year-old female university student, presenting to the Accident and Emergency unit (A&E) of Rehman Medical Institute in the middle of night with marked inspiratory stridor, shortness of breath and breathy dysphonia. A conservative multidisciplinary approach was taken in the management of this patient.
