Presbyphonia is defined as voice change caused by aging. Since presbyphonia is one of the natural aging processes, the treatment should be considered for the patients complaining communication difficulties. The treatment should not only target on presbylaryngis, but also on underlying systemic conditions such as lung function, neurological diseases and medications. Therefore, the treatment for the patients with presbyphonia should be multidisciplinary including underlying disease control, voice therapy and surgical treatment. Although various experiments on treatment of presbylaryngis are currently being tried, repeated injection laryngoplasty is still playing an important role because presbyphonia is destined to get worse over time.
