Abstract

Temporary vocal fold immobility resolving in 4 weeks or less is considered a transient immobility. Many different disorders may lead to this type of laryngeal motion impairment. It is important for otolaryngologists to be familiar with the differential diagnosis for transient vocal fold immobility in order to optimize the management of these unusual cases.
