The Risk of Retinal Toxicity with Plaquenil. FA imaging, and optical coherence tomography. Recent findings suggest that Plaquenil toxicity can develop among patients that are taking the drug at a daily dose lower than the suggested “safe” dose and/or have been on Plaquenil for shorter than five years.

    Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine can cause toxic retinopathy due to their binding of melanin in the retinal pigmented epithelium RPE as well as direct toxicity to retinal ganglion cells. Early findings include mottling of the RPE and blunted foveal reflex. As the retinopathy progresses, a bull's-eye maculopathy develops, as seen in these photos. 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. Pattern of Retinopathy Although the locus of toxic damage is parafoveal in many eyes, Asian. This observation, which can be obtained only through optical coherence tomography angiography, may be relevant to the early findings of hydroxychloroquine toxicity. View Show abstract
