Letter to the Editor:
We read with great interest the report by Li et al  that compared the incidence of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in very low birth weight infants according to early antibiotic treatment. We would like to raise the question: association of early antibiotic exposure and NEC: causality or confounding bias?
