Functional dysphonia (FD) is a voice disorder in the absence of structural or neurologic laryngeal pathology. FD is not a single disease but a disease entity. Therefore several voice disorders, which have completely different pathogenesis, are included in this category. The first step of treatment of FD is differentiating patient's voice symptoms from other organic voice disorders and other functional voice problems. Several different treatment modalities are included in the managements of FD. Voice therapy is in charge of the main role in treatment of FD. Medical treatment is also necessary when patient has general problems which would affect voice production. Vocal folds mucosal lesions can cause FD even the lesion is minor. In this case proper surgical intervention helps to improve the symptom of FD. Psychiatric consultation should be considered when the patient has psychological problems.
