In brief: Rogue warrior

Your immune system is supposed to fight infection and leave your body alone.
For various reasons, sometimes, your immune system runs amok and damages healthy organs/tissues. Just about every part of the body can be harmed by auto-immune disease. Some auto-immune diseases are dangerous and must be treated with strong drugs to reduce immune function (which can lead to infection =( ).
