Hoarseness (Laryngitis)

An inflammation of the voice box, or larynx ("LAIR-inks"), that causes your voice to become raspy or hoarse. Laryngitis can be short-term or long lasting (chronic). Most of the time, it comes on quickly and lasts no more than 2 weeks. Chronic symptoms are those that last 2 weeks or longer.
