Voice Correction Treatment Promotes Recovery of Vocal Cord Paralysis Caused by Atypical Ramsay-Hunt Syndrome: A Case Report.

Atypical Ramsay-Hunt syndrome is caused by varicella zoster viruses (VZV), without herpes, herpes is not around the ear, or posterior cranial nerve palsy is the first clinical manifestation. In this case, a 60-year-old male patient with VZV invades the branches of the vagus nerve alone. The initial symptoms were in the pharynx and larynx, which presented as mucosal ulcers and voice disorders. The ear symptoms were only otalgia and auricular herpes, without deafness, tinnitus, or peripheral facial palsy. Herpes and ulcers healed with medication, but voice disorders caused by vocal cord paralysis did not return. Voice correction treatment has been implemented to help restore the movement and closure of the vocal cords, with ultimately good results. After voice correction treatment, the patient recovered without residual nerve palsy complications. Voice correction treatment has been shown to be potentially effective and promising in shortening the recovery period and improving the recovery rate for vocal cord paralysis caused by viral infection.
