Treatment of Vocal Fold Granuloma Using Botulinum Toxin Type A Injection
The etiology of vocal fold granuloma was identified : post-endotracheal intubation, vocal abuse, acid reflux and idiopathic. The identification of the cause or causal factor is important, since the treatment must be fundamental directed at them. Treatment have included voice therapy and antireflux measures. Surgical excision is considered in patients who do not respond to medical management. In this study, a case of vocal fold granuloma resolved who underwent injection of the affected vocal fold. Botulinum toxin type A is probably successful by decreasing the strength during adduction in the arytenoid region which, when very intense, would perpetuate the granuloma. Localized injection of this neurotoxin is promising both as an initial treatment and as an alternative treatment in patients who do not respond to standard therapy.
