Resumen

Introduction: Voice mutation in men is a process not always normally achieved, sometimes this voice change is not fully developed. The causes are multiple and might follow functional, organic, and environmental disorders. This research intends to measure the vocal and psychosocial impact on subjects with puberphonia. Material and method: Through an analytic case control design, a population of men older than 15 years old, with a fundamental frequency higher than 165. Hz, was studied. These subjects responded to a vocal mutation evaluation survey (PEMUV), validated through pilotage and experts opinion. Results: The study group comprised 26 cases and 107 controls; the survey results indicate that subjects with voice change disorders show a negative perception of their voices, tend to confuse them with a minor, use the telephone less than they would wish and difficulties in their jobs. Statistical analysis was performed with SSPS and Atlas TI software. Conclusions: This research led to the establishment of a puberphonia subject profile. The PEMUV was a sensitive instrument that permitted the measurement of the psychological discomfort this disturbance may trigger.
