It would be hard to say for certain without seeing the damage. I can take a few guesses and give you information on curing common issues with them, however.

Most likely, the symptoms are describing a fungal infection. This will need to be treated with a fungicide. Most of the time, this occurs from the soil remaining too wet for too long without a drying out between watering.

Less likely would be a combination of deficiencies such as iron, phosphorus, and potassium.
