    Although hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity is thought to be rare, recent studies suggest it may have a higher prevalence than previously recognized. A large study examining patients with more than 5 years of HCQ use were evaluated with 10-2 visual fields or spectral-domain optical coherence tomography SD OCT. Developing toxicity than daily dose/kilogram which older literature focused upon19 Research has shown that the risk of toxicity begins to increase sharply towards 1% after approximately 5 to 7 years of use19 A cumulative dose that increases the risk of retinal toxicity • 1000g total Hydroxychloroquine HCQ Conclusions SD-OCT and AO detected abnormalities that correlate topographically with visual field loss from hydroxychloroquine toxicity as demonstrated by HVF 10-2 and may be useful in the detection of subclinical abnormalities that precede symptoms or objective visual field loss.

    Main Outcome Measures: SD-OCT findings suggestive of HCQ retinopathy before parafoveal ellipsoid disruption. Retrospective clinical data review by the Boston Image Reading Center.

    Hydroxychloroquine Macular Toxicity. Hydroxychloroquine is an immunomodulating drug that is commonly used in treating collagen vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. It has the serious side effect that it can cause irreversible macular damage when used in toxic doses over enough time. 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.
