We consider the flow of an incompressible Newtonian fluid through an idealized porous medium consisting of an array of identical solid symmetric lamellae, whose profile varies in space and time due to a stress induced erosion process. The focus is on the influence of mass exchange between solid and fluid on the macroscopic flow. By means of the upscaling procedure illustrated in  we derive the governing system of equations for the macroscopic flow, encompassing various physical situations. We show that Darcy's law no longer applies in the classical sense. The corresponding mathematical problem turns out to be surprisingly complicated. Existence and uniqueness are proved. Numerical simulations are presented.
