In brief: Not dierectly

Any form of nephritis (meaning kidney inflammation) can lead to kidney failure which is usually not fatal since there are different forms of kidney replacement therapy (dialysis or transplantation).
It would obviously be best to not reach this point and therefore prompt diagnosis and treatment would be recommended.
