Medinilla Magnifica - fungus? Help!

I recently inherited a Medinilla Magnifica. Everything seemed to be going well - I followed instructions on not overwatering, etc. and it began to produce two buds! (Success! or so I thought...).
At the same time, I noticed that the leaves surrounding the buds started to get spotted and misshapen, which was followed up by the buds dying and dropping off.
On further investigation, the top side of the leaves look okay on most of the leaves, but the undersides have these reddish spots/streaks.

Can anyone tell me what this is? A fungus? And how do I treat it?
