In brief: Do you mean "penia"?

Pancytopenia designates a deficiency or inadequate numbers of all blood cells.
Leukopenia indicates a deficiency of white blood cells (wbcs). Anemia indicates a deficiency of red blood cells (rbcs). Aplastic anemia refers to the illness whereby the bone marrow can not produce sufficient new blood cells resulting in lowered counts of rbcs, wbcs, & platelets--or pancytopenia.
