Autoimmune disorder

Autoimmune disorders are a group of different conditions that arise when the immune system confuses its own healthy body tissues for antigens or foreign elements, and attacks them in order to destroy them. The exact cause for the onset of these disorders is still unknown. Around 80 different autoimmune disorders are known; severity changes depending on the attacked organ. Some autoimmune reactions are considered part of the mechanisms of diseases such as diabetes.
