The foreign body inserted in body does not initiate autoimmune disease. Viral or bacterial infection associated with foreign body inserted in body can cause autoimmune disease. Autoimmune disease is caused by cancer, vaccination, viral infection and genetic mutation. Chronic infection or disease involving connective tissue or nervous system may trigger autoimmune disease. You should consult specialist if you are diagnosed with autoimmune disease.
