Can someone have a kidney infection from untreated UTI and not know it until they just drop dead?

Can someone have a kidney infection from untreated UTI and not know it until they just drop dead?

Anything is possible: Untreated uti's can turn into "pylonephritis" and that could lead to dehydration and sepsis. Sepsis could lead to multi-organ shut down, heart failure and ultimately death.
