Is pancytopenia same as neutropenia?

Related terms. Neutropenia refers to low numbers of a type of white blood cells called neutrophils. Pancytopenia refers to low numbers of white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. Pancytopenic patients are therefore usually neutropenic but the reverse is not always true.
