Abstract: Dysphonia has an occupational view nowadays. A shift in the voice-oriented professional's clinical approach has been required. New voice-oriented job categories have emerged and, as a result, the voice disorder in the professional enviroment has increased. The economic and productivity harm due to voice disorders are a preocupation. Dysphonia has multiple causes and its evaluation, ethiological conclusion and occupational reports aren't defined yet. Aim: In order to obtain a more accurate and comprehensive evaluation, a multidisciplinary protocol was elaborated to ensure proper medical scientific support. It consists of anamnesis, physical exam, laryngeal endoscopy, perceptive voice analysis and Voice Handicap Index application (VHI). Study design: Transversal historic cohort. Material e método: In this preliminary study, the protocol was applied on 15 voice professionals with dysphonia. Results: 13,3% with normal voice performance; 33,3% with functional dysphonia; 46% with organic dysphonia. Dysphonia was related to the voice-oriented job in 40% cases and it was ruled out in 46,6%. Conclusion: We concluded that the protocol is complete enough to help otolaryngologists evaluate this workers' category.
