Normally, as a result of increased laryngeal growth, the male voice drops about one octave in pitch level during adolescence. Failure of the voice to drop in pitch is consider to be a clinically significant voice disorder - 'mutational dysphonia'. The aim of this article is to evaluate the changes brought about by voice therapy, using the analysis of the EGG measure from Lx Speech Studio program(Laryngograph Ltd, UK) as well as acoustic, and aerodynamic studies in 18-year-old mutational dysphonia patient. The results from the Lx Speech Studio program demonstrated bimodal distribution of DFx(Hz), DQx(%), QxFx and diplophonic characteristic. After voice therapy combined with manual compression method, the distribution of DFx, DQx, QxFx was changed uniform with a dramatic reduction of higher pitch level. In addition, this finding suggests the EGG measure helps to choice treatment options, monitor the efficacy of therapy, and estimate the prognosis of diseases.
