Postoperative hoarsness is a rather common complication resulting from endotracheal intubation. However prolonged hoaraness without organic damage can hardly be seen as a post intubation complication. We have two cases with prolonged hoarsness Postoperatively. The first case, a 50-years old woman, was observed to have an arytenoid fracture and dislocation on the left side after a neck mass was removed under general anesthesia. The second case, a 28-years old woman, was found to have a right vocal cord granuloma in association with progressing hoarsness after a cesarean section was done under general anesthesia. We concluded that the prolonged hoarsness with arytenoid fracture and vocal cord granulom had resulted from the endotracheal intubation.
