This case describes a child who came to the University of Florida ENT clinic with congenital bilateral abductor vocal fold paresis. This child’s chief complaints were a feeling of breathlessness during exercise and difficulty speaking while walking even short distances. Her parents reported that stridor was present during physical exertion and could be heard occasionally at rest. This patient was referred to the University of Florida Speech and Hearing Clinic to address her respiratory function during exercise and speech.
The child’s birth was unremarkable; however, the child failed to thrive for approximately the first 9 months of life. The patient was never trache-otomized prior to enrollment in therapy. There was no history of dysphagia. The only other significant medical condition was a lazy eye.
