Abstract

Objective: To report two cases of Cardiovocal syndrome (or Ortner’s syndrome) due to cardiovascular disease.

Methods:

Study Design: Case Report

Setting: Tertiary University Hospital

Subjects: Two

Results: Two patients with cardiovocal syndrome, one due to an aortic saccular aneurysm and the other due to severe mitral stenosis underwent surgery to correct the underlying cardiovascular disease. Post-operatively, the hoarseness resolved completely in the patient with mitral stenosis but persisted in the patient with aortic saccular aneurysm.

Conclusion: Cardivascular disease should be considered as a differential diagnosis in a patient with hoarseness. A high index of suspicion is needed to make an early diagnosis, which can lead to surgical correction of the potentially life-threatening, underlying cardiovascular disease.
