When a person was suffered from vocal cord paralysis or glottic insufficiency, injection materials (e.g Teflon, Bovine collagen, Autologous fat & tendon, Gelfoam) into the vocal cord have been widely used. But each injection material has some disadvantage. We introduce the Restylane which is composed of a hyaluronic acid, artificially producted. It has advantage of rate foreign body reaction, proper endurance, easy to injection. The patient was 55-year-old woman who showed left vacal cord paralysis after pneumonectomy due to aspergillosis, taken the type I thyroplasty and arytenoid adduction. The middle portion of left vocal cord has some atropic mucosal change, slight chink was noted. The restylane injection into vocal cord was done with suspension laryngoscopy under general anesthesia. In the 3 month follow-up after Restylane injection, the quality of voice has been better progressively. We report a case of Restylane injection as a new method for the improvement of quality of voice.
