Aplastic anaemia can develop due to various viral infections. However, SARS-CoV-2 infection evolving into aplastic anaemia is rarely seen. Here, we present a case of a 6-year-old boy who presented with epistaxis and rashes all over the body after recovery from COVID-19. Peripheral blood smear examination revealed pancytopenia with neutropenia and also reticulocytopenia. Bone marrow biopsy showed a hypoplastic marrow (cellularity of 10%), leading to a diagnosis of aplastic anaemia.
