We present a case of silent sinus syndrome (SSS) who underwent unilateral surgical endoscopic maxillary meatotomy. Orbital floor reconstruction is delayed after follow up. Enophthalmos recovered 8 months after the surgery and radiologic findings improved. SSS is a clinical entity that should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of enophthalmos and can be treated successfully via endoscopic approach.
