In brief: Not likely

Adenoitis is an infection of the adenoid tissue.
Most adults don't have this anymore..But kids may have large adenoid that can become infected leading to sinus and throat infections. Although it is possible to lead to death, it is not likely. It can however cause serious problems in immunocompromised patients.
