Background & Aims: Sheehans syndrome is defined as anterior pituitary dysfunction due to postpartum ischemic necrosis of the pituitary gland after massive bleeding. Hematologic abnormalities such as normochromic anemia have been reported in these patients. However, pancytopenia is rarely observed.
Case presentation: We describe the case of a 30-year-old woman with generalized weakness, pallor skin, amenorrhea and abnormal pituitary gland tests. The laboratory tests showed pancytopenia that was completely reserved after adequate hormone replacement.
Conclusion: Clinicians should consider the possibility of hypopituitarism as a cause of pancytopenia. Sheehans syndrome is a treatable etiology of pancytopenia for women.
