This study investigated relationships between juvenile laryngeal papilloma and exogenous factors, including biographical; environmental, and medical variables. Correlational data revealed the absence of a significant relationship between any one group or combined groups of variables and the recurrence of papilloma as measured by the number of surgical procedures. This provides further support for an organic etiology and does not support voice therapy or attempts to manipulate the papilloma student's environment in order to reduce or eliminate papilloma. Specific parental counseling recommendations are provided.
