In brief: It can, if severe.

How much kidney damage reflux nephropathy can cause depends on the degree of reflux and the number and severity of kidney infections that may result.
These insults can scar the affected kidney, diminishing kidney function. Chronic kidney failure means that a person's overall kidney function is not adequate, and can occur if both kidneys are severely damaged.
