We describe a patient who presented with a French-sounding accent, although she only spoke English. In previous cases of foreign accent syndrome (FAS), neurological causes were clearly identifiable (Moen, 2000). Here the diagnostic picture is unclear. The case illustrates that voice disorders are: “a prototype of disorders which reflect the intricate interplay of emotional, cognitive and physiological functions” (Matas, 1991).
