ABSTRACT Risk factors for colonization or infection with extended‐spectrum beta‐lactamase (ESBL)–producing Enterobacteriaceae during an outbreak in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) included low gestational age and exposure to third‐generation cephalosporins. We also reviewed the existing medical literature regarding the clinical epidemiology of ESBLs in NICUs.
