Silent sinus syndrome (SSS) is called as spontaneous and progressive enophthalmos and descent of the eyeball with resorption of the orbital floor and inward retraction of the ipsilateral maxillary sinus (MS) wall. The problem is more commonly idiopathic. The negative pressure in the MS caused by obstruction of its natural ostium plays a leading role in the development of SSS. Its treatment is surgical; its goal is to restore MS drainage and aeration and to correct enophthalmos and descent of the eyeball.
