The Multinational Association for Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) score for febrile neutropenia in cancer patients is a critical tool for identifying patients at low risk of complications, potentially suitable for oral or outpatient therapy (Table 1) [1]. The MASCC score is based on easily obtainable clinical information, has been validated multiple times [2–12] and has been used as a basis for relevant guidelines including the Australian guideline [13–16].
