The most common side effect associated with its use is retinal toxicity. Objectives. This study aims to detect hydroxychloroquine HCQ-induced retinal toxicity at an earlier stage through the use of spectral-domain optical coherence tomography device, especially by measuring macular retinal ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer RGC-IPL thickness. Hydroxychloroquine, sold under the brand name Plaquenil Sanofi-Aventis, is an antimalarial drug that has gained widespread use in treating various autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. 1 By some estimates, more than 150,000 patients are on long-term therapy with this medication in America alone. 2 Retinal toxicity associated with HCQ use is.

  4. Although hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity is thought to be rare, recent studies suggest it may have a higher prevalence than previously recognized.

    Hence, it is imperative that we become familiar with recognizing the spectrum of HVF and SD-OCT findings associated with Plaquenil retinal toxicity. Of note, SD-OCT, in combination with Humphrey visual field testing, is critical for the early detection of Plaquenil retinal toxicity. Lyons emphasizes the importance of annual screening and says that, although annual screening is recommended for everyone taking Plaquenil, it is imperative for people who have been taking the medication for more than 10 years, who have a higher incidence of retinal toxicity. Plaquenil-induced toxicity usually will not occur before five years of. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ has been used for therapy of rheumatologic disorders since the 1950s. Ocular toxicity associated with HCQ use was initially described in the 1960s 1, 2incidence of HCQ retinopathy is estimated at 1 % after consumption of HCQ for 5 years is marked by paracentral and central scotoma and decreased color vision.
