Abstract: Introdução: Electromyography (EMG) is a technique developed and used in neurology for diagnosis and prognostic definition of neuromuscular diseases. Study design: Clinical prospective. Material and method: Thirty (30) patients with vocal fold immobility have been grouped according to the diagnostic hypothesis clinically established. Results: LEMG diagnosed periphery neuropathic injury, central neuropathic injury or fixation of cricoarytenoid cartilage in all patients who presented vocal fold immobility with no defined cause. In those patients with vocal fold immobility on account of clinically defined mechanical traumatic cause, LEMG confirmed peripheral neuropathic damage in 70% of the cases and for the remaining 30% of the cases, it determined other causes such as peripheral neuropathy by compression, myopathy and fixation of cricoarytenoid cartilage. Conclusion: LEMG confirmed chronic neuropathic damage in those patients with vocal fold immobility by virtue of compression caused by a possible clinically defined tumor.
