    Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine both belong to the quinolone family and share similar clinical indications and side effects, including retinal toxicity. Chloroquine-induced retinal toxicity was first described in 1959 and the retinal toxic effects of hydroxychloroquine were later described in 1967 3, 4. Hence, it is imperative that we become familiar with recognizing the spectrum of HVF and SD-OCT findings associated with Plaquenil retinal toxicity. Of note, SD-OCT, in combination with Humphrey visual field testing, is critical for the early detection of Plaquenil retinal toxicity. Conclusion. Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine has become a mainstay in the DMARD management of inflammatory disease. While very effective, the use of the medication carries the risk of retinotoxicity that is most directly tied to pre-existing retinal disease and cumulative dosage.

    Applies to hydroxychloroquine: oral tablet Along with its needed effects, hydroxychloroquine (the active ingredient contained in Plaquenil) may cause some unwanted effects. Please review the following URL and make sure that it is spelled correctly.

    Although the incidence of macular toxicity is infrequent with Plaquenil use at a dosage of 200mg or 400mg q.d. its visual impact can be devastating. 2,3. The associated classic retinal toxicity is described as a bull’s eye maculopathy ring of depigmented retinal pigment epithelium that spares the foveal area. The mechanism of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine toxicity is not well understood. Chloroquine has an affinity for pigmented melanin-containing structures, which may explain its toxic properties in the eye. Melanin serves as a free-radical stabilizer and can bind toxins, including retinotoxic drugs. Epidemiology. The advance of spectral domain optical coherence tomography SD-OCT and multifocal electroretinography mf-ERG technology has allowed for better detection of retinopathy. These advances, combined with the increased clinical availability of SD-OCT and, to a lesser degree mf-ERG, has increased reported incidence and prevalence of toxicity over the last decade.
