The outbreak of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) began in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China and has spread worldwide rapidly. In this case series study, we evaluated orthopedic patients who referred to the orthopedic trauma ward of Imam Hossein Hospital, Tehran, Iran, as a central hospital for both orthopedic trauma and COVID-19 patients from the beginning of the outbreak of COVID-19 in Iran. We incidentally detected six cases of COVID-19 infection during work-up for trauma management. These patients were managed and treated for both COVID-19 infection and trauma.
