Jordin Sparks Career Threatening Throat Injury

Bleeding in the vocal cord can be a serious problem. Vocal cord hemorrhaging is a complication of laryngitis caused when a person who has laryngitis uses their voice at the height of infection. Treatment is similar to laryngitis, rest, hydration, antibiotics or steroids, but some severe cases may require laser microsurgery.
Jordin Sparks has been ordered not to perform until her condition improves for fear of permanent damage to her vocal cords. You can read more of the story at the NY Post.
