It sounds like chemical burn, possibly just from salty tap water or well water.

The plant is probably in to big of a pot and I would think it has a server root rot problem!!! Repot in small container and make sure soil drains good (perlite). Also do not give up on the corm..... Proper soil & drainage It will come back....
