This patient is a 75 year old with a left true vocal cord paralysis from metastatic breast carcinoma to the mediastinum.  In this area the cancer causes the paralysis by damaging the recurrent laryngeal nerve nerve as it loops around the aortic arch.  It was an abductor muscle paralysis and the left vocal cord had a central position giving the patient a good voice.
