Abstract

We assessed the association between antibiotic exposure in the first 2 weeks of life and development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in a cohort of very low birth weight infants. After controlling for the severity of illness, each additional day of antibiotic therapy was associated with both an increased risk for and severity of bronchopulmonary dysplasia.
