• We report two cases of bilateral vocal cord paralysis in patients with Parkinson's disease and review the possible causes of this condition. We suggest that the vocal cord muscle paralysis is a manifestation of advanced disease. Bilateral vocal cord paralysis in Parkinson's disease may be seen more commonly in the future as therapy enables more patients to live longer.
