In brief: Immunosuppressives

Mfc is usually an autoimmune condition but can sometimes be caused by an infection so treatment depends on the cause.
Most patients though are treated with drugs that suppress the immune system like prednisone, methotrexate, Mycophenolate Mofetil and cyclosporine. Some newer drugs include Remicade (infliximab) and humira. Some drugs are injected directly into the eye like Bevacizumab and triamcinolone.
