    Aug 29, 2014 Retinal toxicity of Plaquenil may manifest itself with subtle disturbances of the retinal pigment epithelium which may eventually lead to complete destruction of the macula in the form of bull’s-eye maculopathy. Several risk factors may increase the likelihood of retinal toxicity from Plaquenil such as. The toxicity resulting from the intake of Plaquenil is due to its affinity for melanin -containing structures in the body. With prolonged usage, metabolites in the drug accumulate in the retina. The drug remains in these parts even if the patients stopped taking the drugs. The American Academy of Ophthalmology released an updated set of screening recommendations for hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil and chloroquine to account for the many studies that have shown the effects of these medications on the retina 1. It succinctly makes the case for screening, and

    In the earliest stages of HCQ toxicity, patients are often asymptomatic with preservation of visual acuity. This review summarizes the clinical presentation of HCQ retinopathy, current American Academy of Ophthalmology recommended screening guidelines and contribution of ancillary imaging studies in establishing a timely diagnosis.

Chloroquine can cause cataract; however, no reports of hydroxychloroquine and cataract have been reported. This article focuses upon hydroxychloroquine retinopathy. FUNDUS AUTO FLUORESCENCE The fundus auto fluorescence confirms Plaquenil toxicity, worse in the left eye than the right eye with an area in the right eye of hyperfluorescence in the macula and the left eye there is an area of hypofluorescence in the macula. The images are slightly compromised by her cataracts. IMPRESSION 1. Aug 06, 2014 By generating high-resolution, cross-sectional images of the retina in vivo, SD-OCT may detect significant structural alterations prior to development of visible HCQ retinopathy. Previously described OCT findings in HCQ toxicity include loss of the external limiting membrane, disruption of the outer ellipsoid zone.
