The present study was conducted in the department of Haematology and Transfusion Medicine, Government Medical College & Hospital, Chandigarh over a period of 32 months. During this period pancytopenia was an indication for bone marrow (aspiration and or trephine) in 77 out of a total of 205 cases (37.6%). The most common cause of pancytopenia as revealed by bone marrow was megaloblastic anaemia (68%) followed by aplastic anaemia (7.70%). This study also revealed few uncommon and rare, but interesting causes of pancytopenia like drug induced agranulocytosis, hemophagocytic syndrome and waldenstroms macroglobinemia.
