In both kidneys, mild increased cortical echogenicity with nephropathy. What it mean?

The report likely comes from a ultrasound examination of the kidneys. The quotation that you provide suggests that there is scarring of the kidneys but does not state why this may be occurring.  I suggest that you discuss this with your physician.
