Can a person get pneumonia (or anything else) from letting sinusitis go untreated?

Yes, pneumonia can be a complication of untreated acute bacterial sinusitis (due to pus dripping down the back of the nose and into the lungs).
Other complications include permanent loss of smell, polyps formation, chronic cough, and more seriously blindness and meningitis!
