Abstract

Medullary sponge kidney is a relatively common, congenital lesion of the renal medulla, which was first described by Lenarduzzi in 1939. Many urologists have been interested in its unknown pathogenesis and complications, such as nephrolithiasis and infection. We report 5 cases of medullary sponge kidney, diagnosed by excretory urography and the literature has been reviewed briefly.
