    Study design: Cohort study of patients with spinal cord injury MESHD (SCI) Objectives: To describe the clinical and analytical features of a Covid-19 infected cohort with SCI to contribute new knowledge for a more accurate diagnosis and to outline prevention measures. Setting: This study was conducted at the National Hospital for Paraplegics (Toledo, Spain). Methods: A cohort analysis of seven patients with SCI infected by Covid-19 was carried out. Diagnosis was confirmed with reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) of nasal exudate or sputum samples. Clinical, analytical and radiographic findings were registered. Results: RT-PCR detected COVID-19 infection MESHD in all patients, affecting males TRANS and people with a cervical level of injury more often (5 out 7). The average delay for diagnostic confirmation was 4 days (interquartile range, 1-10). Fever MESHD Fever HP was the most frequent symptom (6 out of 7). The second most common symptom was asthenia MESHD asthenia HP (4 out of 7), followed by dyspnea MESHD dyspnea HP, cough MESHD cough HP and expectoration (3 out of 7 for each symptom). The MEWS score for Covid-19 severity rating was classified as severe in 5 out of 7. All but one patient showed radiological alterations evident in chest X-Rays at the time of diagnosis. All patients recovered gradually. Conclusion: Our patients with SCI and Covid-19 infection MESHD exhibited fewer symptoms than the general population. Furthermore, they presented similar or greater clinical severity. The clinical evolution was not as pronounced as had been expected. This study recommends close supervision of the SCI population to detect early compatible signs and symptoms MESHD of Covid-19 infection MESHD.
