APHONIA

Written by

Loss of voice, usually sudden. Commonly caused by emotional stress with no detectable physical abnormality in the LARYNX. Damage or disease of the larynx usually results in dysphonia (partial voice loss). Where no physical cause can be identified, reassurance and, if the voice does not quickly return, PSYCHOTHERAPY are the treatment.
