This is a congenital disorder that means it is present since birth. A medullary sponge kidney occurs when small sacs form either on the collecting duct or on the tubes within the kidney. The tiny foods within the kidney are called tubules and collecting the class channel where urine is collected for its removal from the body. These sacs can reduce the outward flow of urine. Either of the kidneys or both the kidneys can get the effect from this condition. This condition is one of the rarest disorders of the kidney and the exact reason is not yet known.

Doctors can even use other tests such as ultrasound for CT scans to diagnose MSK.
