In brief: E. coli
The so-called enterohemorrhagic e.
Coli is linked to a particular form of kidney disease called hemolytic uremic syndrome. Type o157 is the most common but other o types can also cause this. Anti microbial agents not only do not prevent the kidney complication but clearly are linked to a higher risk of it. However, e.Coli sepsis of other types can cause kidney failure that may be prevented by rx.

In brief: Yes and no
A specific group of e.
Coli (ehec-enterohemorrrhagic e. Coli) is responsible for acute renal failure, known as hemolytic uremic syndrome(hus), following bloody diarrhea. Young children and elderly people are more susceptible to develop this complication. Antibiotic treatments so far failed to prevent the development of hus.
