Brief Answer: Yes Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX Yes, chronic renal failure often leads to necrosis of nephrons and tubules. Acute tubular necrosis is a feature of CKD as well as destruction of nephrons. How ever, glomerunephritis are conditions that can lead to CKD which in turn leads to destruction of nephrons. Hope this helps and wish you the best. Dr. Nsah
