dc.description.abstract Objectives: To report the incidence of allergic rhinitis in singers with nonspecific laryngeal examination findings and to correlate the incidence of allergic rhinitis with their vocal symptoms when present. Design: A retrospective review of all the medical records of singers with nonspecific laryngeal findings who presented to a specialty voice center for either vocal training or therapy between June 2002 and September 2005. Setting: Specialty voice center. Participants: Forty-five singers with nonspecific laryngeal findings who presented to a specialty voice center for either vocal training or therapy. Main Outcome Measures: A standardized validated questionnaire for evaluation of allergic rhinitis was filled out by all the subjects. A score above 0 was considered positive. Results: The total prevalence of allergic rhinitis was 87percent (39 of 45 subjects). The singers with vocal symptoms were approximately 15percent more likely to have allergic rhinitis than those with no vocal symptoms (92percent vs 84percent). Singers with more than 2 vocal symptoms had a 25percent higher likelihood of having allergic rhinitis. Conclusions: The incidence of allergic rhinitis in singers is extremely high. Hidden respiratory allergies may affect the professional voice. Proper awareness and a multidisciplinary approach are indispensable for proper diagnosis and treatment. ©2006 American Medical Association. All rights reserved.
