INTRODUCTION Pancytopenia is a hematological phenomenon that is a challenge in clinical practice. It is defined as a decrease in the three lines of blood cells – anemia, leucopenia and thrombocytopenia. The criteria for definition of pancytopenia vary according to age and gender, reflecting the different normal values in each group. A commonly used cutoff in adults is hemoglobin level below 13.5 g/L for males and below 11.5 g/L for females; total leucocyte count below 4 × 10 9 /L; and platelet… Expand
