    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.

    Fundus reflectance images and spectral domain optical coherence tomography SDOCT of the left A and right B eyes of patient 3 hydroxychloroquine sulfate toxicity. The SDOCT shows perifoveal interruption of the photoreceptor inner/outer segment junction and marked reduction in the thickness of the outer nuclear layer arrows. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, Sanofi-Aventis remains widely used in the treatment of various rheumatologic disorders. A small percentage of patients exposed to hydroxychloroquine will develop irreversible, and potentially progressive, retinal toxicity for which no effective treatment exists. SD-OCT is capable of detecting characteristic macular changes of HCQ toxicity. These typical macular abnormalities include loss of the parafoveal ellipsoid zone EZ, parafoveal thinning of the outer nuclear layer ONL and inner plexiform layer IPL, the “flying saucer” sign, and peripapillary nerve fiber layer thinning 12 – 14.

    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.

    As shown by this study and by Marmor and Melles, cases of early HCQ toxicity that display visual field changes attributable to HCQ toxicity in the setting of a ‘normal SD-OCT’ may in fact have early changes on SD-OCT as described in this report. We did not, however, observe any cases of HCQ retinopathy in which the visual field was normal but where morphological SD-OCT changes were detected. Aug 06, 2014 Previously described OCT findings in HCQ toxicity include loss of the external limiting membrane, disruption of the outer ellipsoid zone, parafoveal thinning of the outer nuclear layer and RPE damage. 6,7,10 Despite these various changes, numerous studies have supported the notion that relative “foveal resistance” is common in HCQ toxicity, as demonstrated by preservation of the subfoveal outer retinal layers, accounting for the intact central visual acuity that can be seen even in. SD-OCT and AO detected abnormalities that correlate topographically with visual field loss from hydroxychloroquine toxicity as demonstrated by HVF 10-2 and may be useful in the detection of subclinical abnormalities that precede symptoms or objective visual field loss.
