Abstract

The neutrophil is a critical effector cell in humoral and innate immunity and plays vital roles in phagocytosis and bacterial killing. Discussed here are the neutrophil components necessary for these processes and the diseases in which these components are either lacking or dysfunctional, illustrating that normal neutrophil function is vital for health.
