Abstract: this study set out to describe the profile of the patients with voice complaints and/or alterations who were attended between july 2003 and december 2006 at the speech therapy outpatient unit of "hospital das clínicas da universidade federal de minas gerais." this was analyzed according to age, sex, profession, schooling, origin, treatment performed and factors that interfere in medical care evolution. this was a retrospective study based on the analysis of the recorded data of the individuals according to a specifically prepared protocol. the results showed that the individuals included in this study were predominantly young women, referred by a specialist from belo horizonte, who do not work and also have incomplete elementary school education. attendance of those patients was on an individual basis, and almost half of them were discharged by the speech therapist. the elderly patients, who have functional or psychogenic dysphonia and a neutral or wheezy type of voice, showed a close correlation with the discharge rate by speech therapist. the younger individuals with organo-functional dysphonia bore a statistical correlation with abandoning treatment. the individuals who eventually abandoned treatment did not bear any correlation with the crossed variables.

Abstract: purpose: to establish the occurrence of dysphonic children and to relate data from auditory-perceptive, acoustic and vocal self-perception analyses of dysphonic and non-dysphonic children. methods: participants were 70 children, 37 female and 33 male, with ages ranging from 6 to 10 years. the sustained emission of the vowel /a/ was recorded, and children replied to the question "what do you think of your voice?".after that, the auditory-perceptive analysis of their voices was carried out, based on the parameters of the grbasi scale. the acoustic analysis was also conducted, considering the following measures: fundamental frequency, frequency and amplitude perturbation quotient, and harmonic-to-noise ratio. the self-perception analysis of the subjects' voices was based on content analysis. data were statistically analyzed. results: the occurrence of dysphonic children was 37.14%. breathiness was the most common vocal quality among dysphonic children, followed by roughness, which was also common. the acoustic measures frequency and amplitude perturbation quotient and harmonic-to-noise ration were higher among dysphonic children. however, these measures were similar between children that had positive self-perception and those with negative self-perception. negative self-perception was more frequent among dysphonic children. conclusion: the occurrence of dysphonia in the studied group was 37.14%. dysphonic children present negative self-perception of their voices, voice quality predominantly rough and/or breathy, and altered acoustic measures, when compared to non-dysphonic children.

Abstract: background: vocal quality and voice-related quality of life in elderly women aim: to assess the vocal quality and voice-related quality of life in elderly women, as well as verify if the presence of dysphonia has an influence on the life quality of these women. methods: one hundred and three elderly women, with ages ranging from 60 to 103 years, were recruited. the v-rqol was answered by the participants and their voices were registered and analyzed perceptually by five experienced speech pathologists, using the grbasi scale. after the intra-rater reliability analysis, three speech pathologists were selected with whom a single grbasi scale was built for each of the participant's voice. later, this single assessment was compared to the physical, socio-emotional and total v-rqol scores. results: most of the elderly women presented v-rqol total scores between 70 and 100. they also presented a mild to moderate vocal disorder in the overall scores related to dysphonia, roughness, breathiness and instability in the grbasi scale and did not present scores related to asthenia or strain. the g, r, b and i parameters of the grbasi scale were statistically correlated to the physical and total v-rqol scores. conclusions: although most of the elderly women presented some level of dysphonia, the vocal disorders did not have an influence on their life quality. however, the physical and total v-rqol scores were correlated to dysphonia severity, indicating that the more sever the dysphonia, the lower the voice-related quality of life.

Abstract: OBJETIVOS: determinar o esclarecimento dos responsáveis sobre a terapia Fonoaudiológica realizada em suas crian as; verificar o auto-julgamento de participa o destes na decis o sobre o tipo de terapia realizada em seu menor; e verificar a interferência do nível de escolaridade do responsável sobre o esclarecimento destes quanto à terapia fonoaudiológica realizada em suas crian as. MéTODOS: a amostra constitui-se de 33 estagiários de Fonoaudiologia e 33 responsáveis por crian as entre dois e 12 anos de idade, atendidas no ambulatório de Fonoaudiologia, que foram abordados por meio de um formulário estruturado aplicado sob forma de entrevista. Para análise dos dados utilizou-se o teste do Qui-quadrado e o teste de Pearson, através do programa Minitab 13. RESULTADOS: observou-se que a maioria dos responsáveis (95%) descreveu ter participado na decis o da terapia fonoaudiológica de suas crian as. Entretanto, apenas 39,4% acertaram sobre o tratamento fonoaudiológico realizado. No que se refere à escolaridade verificou-se que o percentual de acertos foi maior para os indivíduos com segundo grau completo (60%) do que para indivíduos com primeiro grau incompleto (30%), entretanto, n o foi possível observar diferen as estatisticamente significantes (p=0,36). CONCLUS ES: a maioria dos responsáveis demonstrou n o estar devidamente esclarecida quanto à terapia Fonoaudiológica realizada em seus menores, uma vez que relatou atitudes passivas frente ao processo de decis o, e, o esclarecimento desses responsáveis tendeu a ser maior para indivíduos com mais escolaridade.

Abstract: type ii 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase/δ5-δ4-isomerase (3β-hsd2), encoded by the hsd3b2 gene, is a key enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of all the classes of steroid hormones. deleterious mutations in the hsd3b2 gene cause the classical deficiency of 3β-hsd2, which is a rare autosomal recessive disease that leads to congenital adrenal hyperplasia (cah). cah is the most frequent cause of ambiguous genitalia and adrenal insufficiency in newborn infants with variable degrees of salt losing. here we report the molecular and structural analysis of the hsd3b2 gene in a 46,xy child, who was born from consanguineous parents, and presented with ambiguous genitalia and salt losing. the patient carries a homozygous nucleotide c.665c>a change in exon 4 that putatively substitutes the proline at codon 222 for glutamine. molecular homology modeling of normal and mutant 3β-hsd2 enzymes emphasizes codon 222 as an important residue for the folding pattern of the enzyme and validates a suitable model for analysis of new mutations.
