    Plaquenil maculopathy monitoring


    Chloroquine is now uncommonly used in favor of its derivative hydroxychloroquine. In the United States, hydroxychloroquine is most often used for its anti-inflammatory effects in rheumatology and dermatology.

    Plaquenil-induced maculopathy is a form of retinal toxicity that is associated with long-term use of of the anti-inflammatory medication plaquenil. The drug-induced maculopathy is associated with the following risk factors Cumulative dose level of 1,000 grams of plaquenil. Patients with existing retinal or macular disease. Mar 02, 2018 If advanced, hydroxychloroquine retinopathy can cause symptoms of loss of peripheral vision, and then in later stages, central vision can become affected too. If hydroxychloroquine retinopathy is advanced, it can result in permanent loss of sight in both eyes that can impact quality of life and activities such as driving and reading. Maturi et al. found fundus mottling and otherwise normal full-field ERG results in a patient with hydroxychloroquine retinopathy, but multifocal ERG revealed markedly decreased retinal responses. 14 We have been monitoring patients taking hydroxychloroquine with periodic multifocal ERG, and our experience with 6 patients is described in this article.

    While early toxicity may be asymtomatic, patients with more advanced stage of toxicity may complain of color vision changes or paracentral scotomas. Its toxic effects on the retina are seen in the macula.

    Dec 04, 2014 The subjective component to HCQ retinopathy screening is an automated visual field testing the central 10° of vision. The earliest signs of HCQ retinopathy on a central visual field may present as a cluster of paracentral points with decreased sensitivity. These points may be only mildly depressed. The presence of bull’s-eye maculopathy indicates the disease has been progressing for years, resulting in foveal thinning and likely vision loss. 8 SD-OCT is a highly sensitive and reproducible imaging modality used in the detection of Plaquenil retinal toxicity. The preferential loss of photoreceptor IS/OS junction makes SD-OCT an ideal tool to identify early changes associated with Plaquenil retinal toxicity. While side effects of corticosteroids are usually to blame, there is also the possibility of ocular damage associated with long-term use of the antimalarial drugs hydroxychloroquine brand name Plaquenil® and chloroquine. Improved vision screening tests and updated dosing guidelines are key to avoiding such complications.
