||This study involved an analysis of 1261 cases (1042 women and 219 men) of vocal organ disorders referred to the ENT Unit of a Polish institute of occupational medicine during 1999-2004. The majority of the patients (65.7%) were primary school teachers, 54.8% were aged 51-60 years. Laryngological, phoniatric and videostroboscopic examinations and other testing procedures (paranasal sinus imaging, allergenic tests) were used to assess the clinical state of the patients. Videostroboscopic tests proved to be a very helpful tool for discriminating between the functional and organic disorders of the vocal organ.
