PURPOSE: to describe the voice therapy after a cyst differential diagnosis by means of videostrobolaryngoscopy associated with inspiratory phonation. METHODS: vase study based on clinical evaluation anamnesis data of phonoaudiologic, videostroboscopic examination, and specific therapeutic conduct. RESULTS: cyst identification in right vocal fold and alterations found in the laryngological examination which were compatible with phonoaudiologic clinical evaluation. After guides speech therapy, we verified evolution in vibration and amplitude of the mucous wave of the right vocal fold, with maintenance of periods as for vocal stability. CONCLUSION: the efficiency of the preceding methods directly depends on the precise evaluations and diagnosis, of the involved professionals, which allows for a conduct guided to the case and less treatment time.
