Vocal fold bridges are rare pathologies and mostly coincidentally discovered in direct laryngoscopy. Although the pathophysiology of formation is not well established, it is attributed as a primary pathology that accompanies sulcus and related vocal fold disorders. This paper presents a vocal fold bridge formation in a professional singer after surgical removal of a sulcus cyst formed as a sequela with typical histologic findings resembling the primary bridges. This case report addresses a very rare unpublished complication of a phonomicrosurgical procedure and implicates the evidence of trauma in the etiology.
