It's probably powdery mildew which usually strikes pumpkin leaves late in the season when nights are cool and days are warm. Once the disease strikes, it's difficult to control. You can try using a fungicide, which will protect uninfected leaves and you can remove the infected leaves to slow the spread of the disease. Wish I had better news for you.
