Abstract

Puberphonia is a psychogenic voice disorder; so far the treatment for this one is speech therapy. Even though there is no organic lesion, surgical treatment holds good for the resistant cases who does not improve with speech therapy. Here, we are sharing our experience of 7 cases with proper preoperative and postoperative voice analysis.
