Why are neutrophils called the firemen of the immune system? Low count of these cells in the blood lead to neutropenia, which may arise in a variety of situations from a well child with a physiological neutropenia to a sick infant with life-threatening infection. Editor-in-Chief of ADC Nick Brown talks to the authors of the paper Rebecca James (Paediatric Haematology and Oncology, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, York, UK) and Bob Phillips (Centre for Reviews and Dissemination, University of York). The podcast accompanies the article published by ADC Education & Practice (https://ep.bmj.com/content/early/2019/02/26/archdischild-2019-316829).
