Background: Spinal cord injury and its health related complications pose a major impact on the overall morbidity and mortality as well as cause economic constrains. It was aimed at looking into the demographic distribution, diagnosis, as well as complications in patients with spinal cord injury.

Methods: The study was conducted at Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP) between 2012 and 2013 from 201 respondents with the help of a structured preformed pretested questionnaire by face to face interview.

Results: Out of 201 respondents 176 (87.6%) were male and 25 (12.4%) were female; majority of the patients were in their 3rd decade which consisted 28.6%, followed by 27.4% in between 21-30 years and 26.8% in between 41-50. Most of the respondents of this study had traumatic paraplegia (56.5%) and Buttock was found to be the predominant site for developing site pressure sore as evident form 67.5%.

Conclusion: Productive males are more prone to spinal cord injury and the most common diagnosis is paraplegia with the most risky area is buttock for developing pressure sore. The findings may add in the way of developing awareness among stakeholders regarding demography, diagnosis and the pattern of the complications in a country like Bangladesh.
