Since May 2000, extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing (ESBL) Salmonella Isangi were isolated from pediatric patients at a tertiary hospital. A total of 41 patients with positive cultures were reviewed, and the majority presented with gastroenteritis, fever, or both. One ESBL phenotype was noted in all isolates, and clonality was confirmed by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. This is the first report of Salmonella sp. ESBL resistance in our hospital.
