Management of prolonged ulcerative laryngitis requires close observation with strobovideolaryngoscopy; therapy involves steroids, antibiotics, antifungal drugs, and antireflux treatment.

An 18-year-old female vocal performance major presented with complaints of worsening hoarseness for 4 months. Her dysphonia was accompanied by excessive throat clearing, vocal fatigue, and loss of high pitches. She reported several upper respiratory tract infections in the months preceding her voice symptoms. She was healthy otherwise and had been treated only for gastroesophageal reflux disease in the past.
