Description Pancytopenia is an important clinico-haematological entity and striking feature of many serious and life-threatening illnesses. Many haematological and non-haematological diseases involve the bone marrow primarily or secondarily and cause pancytopenia. Decrease in haemopoietic cell production, ineffective haemopoiesis and peripheral sequestration or destruction of the cells are the main pathophysiology of pancytopenia. The cause of pancytopenia thus may be lying in the bone marrow or in the periphery or both. Careful history, physical examination, simple blood work, review of the peripheral blood smear, sometimes bone marrow examination and trephine biopsy are required for diagnosis. Treatment and prognosis depend on the severity of pancytopenia and underlying pathology.
