Abstract: Let $ X$ be a dense subspace of a topological space $ T$, let $ Y$ be a uniformizable space, and let $ f:X \to Y$ a continuous map. In this paper we study the problem of the existence of a continuous extension of $ f$ to the space $ T$. Thus we generalize basic results of Taimanov, Engelking and Blefko-Mrówka on extension of continuous functions. As a consequence, if $ \mathcal{D}$ is a nest generated intersection ring on $ X$, we obtain a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of a continuous extension to $ v (X,\mathcal{D})$, of a continuous function over $ X$, when the range of the map is a uniformizable space, and we apply this to realcompact spaces. Finally, we suppose each point of $ T\backslash X$ has a countable neighbourhood base, and we obtain a generalization of a theorem by Blair, herewith giving a solution to a question proposed by Blair.
