In brief: Strep throat

Actually, not. A strep throat affects the pharynx and tonsils and is caused by bacteria.
On the other hand, laryngitis involves the larynx or voice box and is mainly cuased by viruses. You develop a sore throat with strep and hoarness of the voice (or loss of voice in extreme cases) with laryngitis.
