It can definitely have an effect on both the immune system and liver as well as the kidneys, skin, GI tract, etc.
It depends on the severity of the tss.

In brief: Yes
Toxic shock syndrome (tss) is caused by bacteria, usually staph or strep, which release a chemical that affects the immune system. Fever, rash, low blood pressure and confusion are common symptoms.
This very serious illness can progress to multiple organ failure, including the kidneys and liver. Tss is treated with antibiotics and support. If you suspect tss see your doctor immediately.
