Abstract Dissemination of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli is of global concern. CTX-M type ESBL harbored in Enterobacteriaceae is the most common enzyme that hydrolyzes broad-spectrum cephalosporins. The regional relationship among medical facilities needs to be elucidated to control the dissemination of antimicrobial resistant bacteria. In this study, we collected 207 isolates of ESBL-producing E. coli from hospitals with less than 300-beds in Kanagawa prefecture, and examined their antimicrobial susceptibility and molecular epidemiology. All strains were found susceptible to imipenem, but 93% of the strains were resistant to ciprofloxacin. The antimicrobial susceptibility of the strains was found to differ from region to region and the rete of resistance to cefmetazole, cefepime, and ceftazidime in isolates from Sagamihara region was less than that in all other regions. Furthermore, the genotype of CTX-M-27 type ESBL was the most prevalent, and CTX-M-15, -55, and -27 types of ESBL that induce ceftazidime resistance were detected in 61% of the isolates. In conclusion, our study provides epidemiological data regarding ESBL-producing E. coli to surrounding medical facilities and contributes to their regional surveillance in Kanagawa prefecture.
