In brief: Yes

Pancreatitis is a particularly dangerous condition.
Despite best medical treatment, some cases can lead to death. When you have pancreatitis, enzymes that normally digest food are released in the abdomen and start digesting the body from the inside. This causes an intense reaction to contain the spill.
