Diagnosis of vocal cord dysfunction (VCD) relies on clinical history, inspiratory flow–volume loops, and visualization of vocal cord motion by rhinolaryngoscopy. The treatment of VCD requires a multidisciplinary approach relying on elimination of triggers, treatment of comorbid conditions, and consultation with a speech pathologist. This chapter focuses on VCD as it relates to symptoms that suggest asthma and provides specific information to help with the evaluation of VCD.
