    There are several various factors and conditions that would cause organ failure!!!

    Blood loss, poisoning, trauma(harsh) drugs, leukemia, and acute illnesses. And this can occur with one or multiple organs, depending on the underlying cause. Its either chronic or acute.

    Sepsis is common for multiple organ failures.

    Serious organ failure is associated with liver, kindey's, heart ,lungs, and pancreas.

    Liver failure by cirrhosis, alcohol, viral hepatitis, or by autoimmune diseases.

    Kidney failure from hypertensive nephrosclerosis, diabetes, or glomerular disease.

    Heart failure -congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathy and coronary artery disease.

    Lungs by emphysema or idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, 

    Pancreas can fail due to diabetes
