    Abstract. Background The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations on screening for chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy are revised in light of new information about the prevalence of toxicity, risk factors, fundus distribution, and effectiveness of screening tools. Pattern of Retinopathy Although the locus of toxic damage is parafoveal in many eyes, Asian. Background/Aims Hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy may result in severe and irreversible vision loss, emphasising the importance of screening and early detection. The purpose of this study is to report the novel finding of early optical coherence tomography OCT abnormalities due to HCQ toxicity that may develop in the setting of normal Humphrey visual field HVF testing. Methods Data from. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ has been used for therapy of rheumatologic disorders since the 1950s. Ocular toxicity associated with HCQ use was initially described in the 1960s 1, 2incidence of HCQ retinopathy is estimated at 1 % after consumption of HCQ for 5 years is marked by paracentral and central scotoma and decreased color vision.

    Bull’s Eye Retinopathy Early macular toxicity can cause stippling or mottling of the RPE Next, granular pigmentation and loss of the normal foveal reflex can occur It’s believed but not proven that if early macular changes are detected and the medication is stopped, any toxicity that has occurred can be reversed.1 If the maculopathy continues to progress, concentric zones of. The treatment for early toxicity usually requires stopping Plaquenil. Patients taking Plaquenil should have an early baseline assessment of visual acuity, macular appearance and central field sensitivity. The macular appearance and function should be checked at intervals of 6 to 12 months.

    Hydroxychloroquine-induced cardiomyopathy and heart failure. Sep 13, 2017 However, the exact mechanism of HCQ cardiotoxicity remains unclear and the role of heredity has not been studied due to the rare occurrence of the disease. We present a case of twin sisters who both suffered from systemic lupus erythematosus SLE and HCQ-induced cardiomyopathy presenting with decompensated heart failure HF.
