In brief: Possible

It all depends on the kind of autoimmune disease and place of involvement.
For instance, lupus could cause cerebritis ie brain inflammation and even could go as far as causing coma. But lupus could be only localized to other places like causing kidney disease, lung diseases, skin disease, or arthritis.
