2 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

This happens when crystals of uric acid form in the kidney parenchyma -- "urate ephropathy".
There is a severe acute form that is unmistakable; there's disagreement as to whether mild elevations of uric acid do this -- i'm a pathologist interested in kidney and haven't seen anatomic evidence that it's so. Consider adding a uric-acid lowering agent if you have clinical gout.
