    Cutaneous lupus erythematosus CLE is an autoimmune, inflammatory skin disease seen in patients with or without systemic lupus erythematosus SLE. The management of CLE includes treatment and prevention of lesions, as well as routine assessment for systemic disease. Treatment options include both topical and systemic therapies. Chloroquine is a medication used to prevent and to treat malaria in areas where malaria is known to be sensitive to its effects. Certain types of malaria, resistant strains, and complicated cases typically require different or additional medication. It is also occasionally used for amebiasis that is occurring outside the intestines, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus erythematosus. Adverse cutaneous reactions to hydroxychloroquine are more common in patients with dermatomyositis than in patients with cutaneous lupus erythematosus. Pelle MT1, Callen JP.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend against treatment of malaria with chloroquine alone due to more effective combinations. In areas where resistance is present, other antimalarials, such as mefloquine or atovaquone, may be used instead.

    Chloroquine, which is made by one manufacturer in the US and was approved in the country in 1949, has been in shortage since March 9, according to the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Chloroquine has a particularly high affinity for melanin-containing cells and hence there are very high levels of chloroquine in the skin mainly, the epidermis and retina. Chloroquine has a long half-life, which can vary between 74 hours and 50 days, depending on the cumulative dose. The antimalarial agents chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ are considered to be effective for the treatment of cutaneous lupus erythematosus CLE and the symptoms associated with systemic lupus erythematosus SLE such as rashes, joint pain, and fatigue.
