Vocal cord nodules: a review.Clin Otolaryngol Allied Sci. 1988 Feb; 13(1):43-51.CO
Vocal cord nodules have a variety of synonyms in the literature, including laryngeal nodules, laryngeal nodes, corditis nodosa, singers' nodes, teachers' nodules, screamers' nodes, parsons' nodes, and nodular laryngitis. All of these refer essentially to the same condition. In 1954 referring to vocal cord nodules, Brodnitz and Froeschels wrote that, 'Ever since Tuerck first described the condition in 1868, discussion of the aetiology, the histological nature, and the therapy still has not ceased'. This statement still applies today.
