In brief: Not usually

Medullary sponge kidney is associated with hematuria, stones and calcinosis.
Sometimes accompanied by metabolic acidosis. There is no specific treatment and is frequently not associated with loss of renal function. It can be found with chronic kidney disease. It is not considered a fatal condition.
