Vocal nodules are the consequence of functional voice disorders, which are also caused by vocal abuse or misuse. An increased vocal load, for example, due to the patient's profession, demands high-volume speech for the formation of nodules. In the present case report, a 26-year-old female patient acquired this disease followed by common cold cough. Her problems were aggravating by high-volume speech and getting fatigability also. This patient was given Anutaila Nasya with Sitopaladi Churna, Naradiya Laxmi vilasa Rasa, Yashtimadhu Ghanvati (for chewing), and Dashmoola Kwatha(Kavala). The patient was advised for strict voice rest and steam inhalation for better result. After 1 month of treatment, the patient got relief from all her complaints and gained normal voice. On examination, it was found that vocal nodules disappeared in direct laryngoscopy. Hence, this single case report shows that ayurvedic management of vocal cord nodules gives excellent result and improves patients' quality of voice.
