   In the absence of symptoms of an acute
    upper respiratory infection, patients with
    hoarseness persisting for more than two
    weeks should be referred for a complete
    otolaryngologic examination.
   Acute laryngitis, which is self-limited and
    related to acute respiratory illness or acute
    voice misuse
   Chronic laryngitis, which is related to
    irritants, reflux, chronic infection (such as
    fungal), or habitual vocal misuse.
   Benign vocal fold lesions, Polypoid
    corditis, Polyps and nodules
   Malignancy
   Neurologic dysfunction, Unilateral & Bilateral
    paralysis, Parkinson disease, Myasthenia gravis.
   The anterior compartment (also referred to as
    the anterosuperior compartment or
    retrosternal space) is anterior to the
    pericardium and includes the thymus, the
    extrapericardial aorta and its branches, the
    great veins, and lymphatic tissue.
   The middle compartment is bounded by the
    pericardium anteriorly, the posterior
    pericardial reflection, the diaphragm, and the
    thoracic inlet. This compartment includes the
    heart, intrapericardial great vessels,
    pericardium, and trachea.
   The posterior compartment extends from the
    posterior pericardial reflection to the
    posterior border of the vertebral bodies and
    from the first rib to the diaphragm. It
    includes the esophagus, vagus nerves,
    thoracic duct, sympathetic chain, and
    azygous venous system.
   The primary masses most often found in the
    anterior compartment are thymic tumors
    (thymomas, thymic carcinomas, thymic
    carcinoid tumors, and thymolipomas), thymic
    cysts, germ cell tumors, Hodgkin and non-
    Hodgkin lymphomas,intrathoracic
    goiter,thyroid tumors, parathyroid adenomas,
    connective tissue tumors (eg, lipomas,
    liposarcomas, lymphangiomas,
    lymphangiohemangiomas, hemangiomas),
    and pericardial cysts.
   Masses of the middle mediastinum include
    thyroid tumor or goiter, tracheal tumors,
    aortopulmonary paraganglioma (chemodectoma),
    bronchogenic cysts, and lymphomas. A middle
    mediastinal mass may also represent
    lymphadenopathy as a result of infectious,
    malignant (metastatic), and idiopathic (eg,
    sarcoidosis) etiologies. Thymic masses and
    pericardial cysts have been reported in the
    middle mediastinum, however, these lesions
    generally occur in the anterior mediastinum.
   The posterior mediastinum is the location of
    most neurogenic tumors.esophageal tumors
    and duplication cysts, hiatus hernia, and
    neurenteric cysts.
