In brief: Mostly infections
Bacterial infections that produce certain toxins such as a type of e coli recently found in germany but also present here can cause a serious disorder called hemolytic uremic syndrome with sudden kidney failure.
Streptocaccol infections of a certain type can cause nephritis due to antibodies produced against them.
