Otolaryngologist: Hoarseness which has persisted this long in a 5 year old child suggests vocal cord injury or dysfunction. I recommend that your child be examined by an otolaryngologist for diagnosis and treatment. Discuss this with your pediatrician who may know of an otolaryngologist who specializes in children with ear,nose and throat problems and dysphonia.
