The above video shows a 66 year old patient who is 3.5 years status post radiation therapy for squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx.  He had a 75 pack year history of smoking and quit just 2 months prior to the video recording.  The patient has a very weak voice which was barely more than a whisper.  Both the past radiation therapy and the recent heavy smoking has contributed to the patient's condition.  Submitted by Kevin Kavanagh, MD
