Summary : We report a case of a 77-year-old man with a 3-year-history of progressive dysphonia, without dysphagia. His voice sounded breathy ; the pitch and the loudness were low. He complained of a few episodes of voice breaking. At laryngostroboscopy the adduction motion of the left true vocal cord was slower than the contralateral one. A cervical spine x-ray demonstrated a generalized vertebral osteophytosis and a 3-centimeter-long anterior osteophytic spur, originating from C6. Evaluation with barium swallow showed a dislocation of the inferior cervico-oesophagus to the right, with a preservation of its lumen. Cervical-thoracic computed tomography showed a mild pressure produced by the osteophyte on the thyroid cartilage and the presence of the radiological criteria for Forestier's disease. Therefore, the presence of dysphonia in older adults without any primary laryngeal cause, indicates a radiological study of the cervical-thoracic region, in order to discover cervical osteophytosis.
