Bogart-Bacall Syndrome is a vocal misuse disorder.
Additional recommended knowledge
People who speak or sing out of their normal range can experience vocal fatigue, which is one cause of dysphonia. The people most commonly afflicted are those who speak in a low-pitched voice, particularly if they have poor breath and vocal control. The syndrome can affect both males and females.
Despite the name of the syndrome, neither Humphrey Bogart nor Lauren Bacall was known to suffer from this syndrome; rather, it is named after them for their low-pitch manner of speaking.
Treatment usually involves voice therapy by a speech language pathologist.
