Neurogenic inability of one vocal cord to move. Unilateral vocal cord paralysis is associated with weak voice of a degree that can vary between individuals. Symptoms may include one or more of the following: weak, air-wasting dysphonia; inability to be heard in noisy locations; a tendency of the voice to be somewhat stronger in the morning but to “fade” with use; and a tendency to cough when drinking thin liquids.
