    COVID-19 is a global concern nowadays, and the psychological impact of the pandemic cannot be overlooked. People are under insurmountable pressure, which may lead to psychological problems such as anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and depression MESHD. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the mental health of spinocerebellar ataxia MESHD ataxia HP ( SCA MESHD) patients during COVID-19 pandemic and to analyze its influencing factors. We conducted an online questionnaire survey among 307 SCA MESHD patients from China. The contents of the questionnaire included general information, the self-rating anxiety HP anxiety MESHD scale (SAS), the self-rating depression MESHD scale (SDS). The relevant influencing factors included COVID-19 risk factors, age TRANS, gender TRANS, BMI (body mass index), educational background, disease course, and score of the scale for the assessment and rating of ataxia HP ataxia MESHD ( SARA MESHD). Results indicate the 307 SCA MESHD patients had an anxiety HP anxiety MESHD rate of 34.9%, along with a depression MESHD rate of 56.7%. Their SAS MESHD and SDS scores were significantly higher than those of the Chinese norm group (SAS: 45.8±10.1 vs. 37.2±12.6, P < 0.01; SDS: 55.1±12.2 vs. 41.9±10.6, P < 0.01). Risks of exposure to COVID-19, educational level, and disease course may be factors affecting mental health status. The existence of a positive correlation among the scores of SARA, SAS MESHD and SDS scale was demonstrated, the higher the SARA score, the higher the risk of anxiety HP anxiety MESHD and depression. Anxiety HP Anxiety MESHD and depression MESHD were more prevalent in SCA MESHD patients compared with the normal population, and depression MESHD was more common than anxiety HP anxiety MESHD during this pandemic. More psychological attention should be paid to SCA MESHD patients during COVID-19 pandemic.
