METHODS: 50 taken care of dysphonic professors between 2010 and 2011 in the UnespFMB, had filled a protocol and had carried through videolaryngoscopy. RESULTS: 50 professors (46 Women; 4 men), age between 2039 (n26), 4059 (n22), > 60 (n2); education level: basic (n8), medium (n27), basic/average (n24), childhood (n6), superior (n1); Journey: < 20 hours (n6), 2039 hours (n23), > 40 hours (n21); Time in the profession: <5 years (n9), 510 (n9), 1020 (n17), >20 (n15); student for class: <20 (n5), 2040 (n24), >40 (n21). Medical Licence: 13 (n18), 46 (n7), > 6 (n6), no one (n27). Time of dysphonia: < 3 m (n5), 3m1 year (n18), > 1 year (n27),Frequency of the symptoms: permanents (n36), sporadic (n14); Evolution of the symptoms : gradual (n44), suddenly (n6); Factors of worsening: vocal abuse (n45), extreme day (n46), noise (n27), pollutants (n22), others (n30); Symptoms associates: nasalsinusal (n34), gastroesophageal (n26), auditory (n10), others (n18). Symptoms: hoarseness (n46), effort to speech (n35), fatigue and fatigue (n33), cough (n30), others (n90). Videolaryngoscopy: nodules (n18), functionary (n16), paquidermy (n9), others (n13).
