Key Points

Silent sinus syndrome (SSS) and chronic maxillary atelectasis (CMA) represent an overlapping clinical entity, both likely lying on the spectrum of one disease process.

There is widespread inconsistency of diagnosis in the literature of reported cases of SSS and CMA.

We propose a novel, comprehensive staging system to simplify diagnosis and inform management.
