Primary autoimmune neutropenia in children is a rather unknown but not an infrequent disease: it is probable that in his career a paediatric practitioner will deal at least with one patient and it is pretty sure that a hospital paediatrician will deal with more than one case. The disease induces anxiety in the family and in the child's paediatrician: more than 2/3 of the patients experience neutrophils <500/mm 3 and the anxiety is related to possible serious infections. Luckily, childhood autoimmune neutropenia is almost ever a mild disease that will recover in a short time.
