Silent sinus syndrome associated with natural childbirth
Languages of publication
Spontaneous, painless enophthalmos, hypoglobus with orbital floor resorption and maxillary sinus collapse on the ipsilateral side is recognised as a rare condition known as the silent sinus syndrome. This paper aimed to present an unusual association of natural childbirth and the onset of orbital floor displacement caused by silent sinus syndrome. We wanted to present a case of a 31-year-old woman presented with a 3-month history of painless, progressive right enophthalmos otherwise utterly asymptomatic who developed symptoms shortly after natural childbirth. That association have never been presented before in literature. We also wanted to discuss the pregnancy-related nasal congestion. We present our experience with these case treated with a single-stage procedure, focusing on the advantages of this one-step approach.
