ABSTRACT
Substantial confusion exists regarding the nomenclature of benign vocal fold lesions (BVFL), because there were no pathologically diagnostic findings and deep understanding of pathogenesis in the past. There is no consensus on specific labels for BVFL, nor are the most commonly used terms defined. There is a need for a defined nomenclature for the purpose of improving communication among clinicians and with patients. Furthermore, precise definitions of BVFL will facilitate clinical research of voice disorders and may lead to a better understanding of outcomes for BVFL treatment. Laryngoscope, stroboscope, voice evaluation are used to diagnose BVFL. The objective of this review article was to develop a new paradigm of BVFL nomenclature using patient's history, stroboscope, voice therapy results, and operative findings. Furthermore, precise definitions of BVFL will facilitate clinical research of voice disorders and may lead to a better understanding of outcomes for BVFL treatment.
