Often acute renal failure (ARF) is induced or maintained by septicemia and the kidneys do not recover as long as the surgical or internistic measures to remove the source of infection are not successful. The detection of bacteria in arterial blood cultures is often extremely difficult for the clinican [4]. Otherwise, specific antibiotic therapy of the bacteremia is an essential therapeutic measure for the course of illness.
