Pancytopaenia is a rare clinical presentation of severe leptospirosis. We would like to report a case of severe leptospirosis that progressed to pancytopaenia despite initial penicillin therapy. The patient needed a second course of antibiotic with doxycycline to improve his persistent symptoms and cytopaenia. Persistent pancytopaenia in severe leptospirosis and its management were reviewed.
