FERREIRA, Cynthia Priscila; GAMA, Ana Cristina Côrtes; CUNHA, Cristiane de Freitas  e  SANTOS, Marco Aurélio Rocha. Dysphonia and bulimia: evaluation of vocal and laryngeal signs and symptoms. Rev. soc. bras. fonoaudiol. [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.2, pp.177-185. ISSN 1982-0232.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-80342009000200007.

PURPOSE: To describe vocal and laryngeal signs and symptoms in patients with bulimia. METHODS: A blind, descriptive, randomized, transversal study was carried out. Eleven female subjects with the diagnosis of purgative bulimia nervosa and ages ranging from 18 to 34 years underwent otorhinolaryngological and vocal evaluations. RESULTS: The most common vocal and laryngeal symptoms were throat clearing and globus faringeus, related by 10 subjects (90.9%). In the auditory-perceptive evaluation, the most common scores were characterized as light in all analyzed parameters. The accumulation of thick mucus over the larynx occurred in five patients (45.4%), followed by median-posterior triangular glottic chink and mucosal thickening at the interaytenoid region, in four patients (36.3%). CONCLUSION: The laryngeal and perceptual findings were less expressive than vocal and laryngeal complaints.
