Many pathogens can manipulate macrophages after phagocytosis yet are efficiently killed by neutrophils.

Here, we review recent work on neutrophils and their interaction with four different bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus, Helicobacter pylori, Anaplasma phagocytophilum and members of the Enterobacteriae family.
