    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. May 16, 2011 Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil; HCQ has been an important and effective drug for the treatment of lupus erythematosus and related autoimmune and inflammatory diseases for half a century, although its potential to cause retinal damage continues to raise concern among rheumatologists and ophthalmologists. Guidelines Summary. The American Academy of Ophthalmology released revised recommendations on screening for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine retinopathy in 2016. All patients must undergo a baseline dilated fundus examination to rule out preexisting maculopathy.

    Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio. In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes.

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.
