We report a case of laser arytenoidectomy for bilateral abductor palsy of the vocal fold in a patient with Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's disease is known to be a rare cause for bilateral vocal fold palsy and this is the second case reported in the English literature. Majority of the reports to date are in the non-English literature. Tracheostomy has been the classic treatment option offered to these patients. To date no report has been found in the literature about a laser arytenoidectomy being performed in a patient suffering from bilateral vocal fold palsy in Parkinson's disease. We have suggested this option as it improves the quality of life of the individual and avoids the difficulty faced by a Parkinson's patient in managing tracheostomy care due to bradykinesia, rigidity and tremor.
