Yes but...: It is rare. I am presuming that you are referring to the syndrome seen in young children; dehydration and electrolyte abnormalities can lead to death in these patients if not treated, but this is rare in modern medicine.
Dr. Soren Singel
Neurosurgery 29 years experience
Yes: If dehydration gets out of hand without adequate medical care - yes.
