Vocal cord granulomas are benign inflammatory lesions of the vocal cords. They are usually located over the vocal process of the arytenoid cartilage. A corresponding ulcer on the contralateral side is a common finding. Clinical signs include foreign body sensation, a need to repeatedly clear one's throat, hoarseness, and reduced voice resilience. Voice abuse and gastro-oesophageal reflux are commonly cited important aetiological factors. Differentiation from malignant lesions is usually possible by history and clinical examination; biopsy is only rarely necessary. The primary treatment is speech therapy or voice counselling, if necessary, supported by antacids. Surgical excision is not helpful because contact granulomas tend to recur. We present two typical cases of vocal cord granulomas and discuss their management.
