In brief: Tumor necrosis

Factor (tnf) promotes the inflammatory response, which in turn causes many of the clinical problems associated with autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis.
These disorders are sometimes treated by using a tnf inhibitor. The important side effects that have been most extensively related to tnf blockers include: lymphoma, infections, congestive heart ad others.
