|Abstract:||The rate of suicide following spinal cord injury has not been extensively studied but appears to be greater than in the general population. Six patients who died by suicide, from a total of 342 patients who were treated for acute spinal cord injury over a 5 year period are described. Clinical features shared by this group of patients included being male; having schizoid, depressive or narcissistic personality traits; alcohol or drug abuse; family or significant others favouring death as a preferred option; and the development of significant depression.|
