    Hydroxychloroquine and ocular toxicity recommendations on screening 2009


    Her rheumatologist instructed her to undergo a baseline ocular examination prior to initiating Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine, Sanofi-Aventis) therapy. Toxic maculopathy associated with chloroquine use was first documented in the literature five decades ago.1 In the United States, Plaquenil––an analog to chloroquine––is used to treat a variety of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and several distinct inflammatory disorders. 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.

    Initially, central visual acuity may be unaffected, but the patient may notice related paracentral scotomas that often interfere with reading. The associated classic retinal toxicity is described as a bull’s eye maculopathy (ring of depigmented retinal pigment epithelium that spares the foveal area).

    It is thought that although the bull’s eye seen on ophthalmic exam represents a disruption of the pigmented part of the retina, it is the photoreceptors that are the targets of hydroxychloroquine toxicity. Notably the new recommendations were based on a single study published in 2014 that evaluated the prevalence of and risk factors for hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity. Jan 05, 2020 Hydroxychloroquine is a well-tolerated medication for various rheumatologic and dermatologic conditions. Its main side effects are gastrointestinal upset, skin rash, headache, and ocular toxicity1. Within the eye, hydroxychloroquine can adversely impact the cornea, ciliary body, and retina1 Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine 4-aminoquinolones are used by dermatologists for the treatment of a wide range of disorders. It is widely recognized that their use may lead to ocular complications, but policies for ophthalmological screening and follow-up vary widely.

    Moving in to first place Antimalarials for treating. Annual ocular toxicity screening is recommended to begin only after 5 years of use unless patients are considered high-risk or develop ophthalmologic symptoms. Amsler grids are no longer appropriate for screening. Appropriate ocular toxicity testing should include 10–2 visual field testing and spectral domain ocular coherence tomography.
