Abstract: Sheehan’s syndrome is hypopituitarism caused by anterior pituitary necrosis due
to hemorrhage leading to hypovolemic shock during or after childbirth. We present a case of a 32-year old lady
who developed severe post partum hemorrhage after child-birth, eight years back. Since then she has progressively
developed symptoms of anemia and now she has presented to us with pancytopenia. Anemia is the most common
hematological disorder known to be associated with Sheehan’s syndrome, however pancytopenia is rarely reported.
