Abstract
Postpartum ischemic necrosis of the pituitary gland, known as Sheehan's syndrome, is well- established clinical entity. In anterior pituitary insufficiency, there is very often a normochromic or hypochromic anemia but pancytopenia secondary to the hypopituitarism is less common. We report a case of pancytopenia due to complete aplasia of the bone marrow associated with Sheehan's syndrome, in which hormone replacement therapy alone produced full hematological recovery.
Key Words: Sheehan's syndrome, Pancytopenia, Hormone replacement therapy
