What is Laryngitis?

Description of the disease

Laryngitis is inflammation and swelling of the vocal cords, which leads to a hoarse voice. This condition can be acute or chronic, and is most often caused by a viral infection, such as a cold or the flu.


  • Acute laryngitis
  • Chronic laryngitis


  • Hoarse voice
  • Sore throat
  • Cough
  • Difficulty breathing


Acute laryngitis is usually caused by a viral infection, while chronic laryngitis can be associated with smoking, alcohol abuse, or persistent vocal cord strain.


The diagnosis of laryngitis is usually based on symptoms and the results of throat and vocal cord examinations. Sometimes laryngoscopy may be necessary.


Treatment for laryngitis includes resting the voice, humidifying the air, taking antiviral or anti-inflammatory medications, and possibly receiving therapeutic vocal training from a specialist.


To prevent laryngitis, it is important to avoid vocal strain, contact with infected individuals, as well as alcohol and smoking.


Laryngitis can be treated by an otolaryngologist.
