    Pattern of Retinopathy: Although the locus of toxic damage is parafoveal in many eyes, Asian patients often show an extramacular pattern of damage. Dose: We recommend a maximum daily HCQ use of 5.0 mg/kg real weight, which correlates better with risk than ideal weight.

    A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary such as the title, abstract, and list of authors, clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Thus, ophthalmoscopy alone is not sufficient to screen for HCQ toxicity. 7,8 That being said, a detailed anterior and posterior segment examination to assess for corneal verticillata as well as concurrent macular disease i.e. age-related macular degeneration, remains important in monitoring these patients long term. Chloroquine CQ is used to prevent and treat malaria and amebiasis,1 while hydroxychloroquine HCQ, a less toxic metabolite of chloroquine, is used to treat rheumatic diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus SLE, rheumatoid arthritis RA, juvenile idiopathic arthritis JIA and Sjogren's syndrome.2 Both medications can cause corneal deposits, posterior subcapsular lens opacity.

    Risk of Toxicity: The risk of toxicity is dependent on daily dose and duration of use. There are no similar demographic data for CQ, but dose comparisons in older literature suggest using 2.3 mg/kg real weight.

    Retina Manifestations of Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine Toxicity. The classical definition of chloroquine toxicity is characterized by bilateral pigmentary change of the macula usually sparing the fovea. This has come to be known as bull’s-eye maculopathy. The retinal periphery may also be involved but infrequently. To reduce the incidence of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine toxicity, health care providers HCP's that prescribe these medications and those that screen for ocular toxicity have developed clear dosing and screening protocols that have reduced the risk of end-stage disease; bull's eye maculopathy and central vision loss Level I. Jan 05, 2020 Disease Entity. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil and chloroquine cause ocular toxicity to various parts of the eye such as the cornea, ciliary body, and retina. Chloroquine can also induce cataract formation; however, no reports of hydroxychloroquine and cataract have been reported.
