    Plaquenil retinal screening guidelines


    One such commonly used medication for dermatologic and rheumatologic inflammatory conditions is hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil), a chloroquine derivative. It is used to treat many diseases including malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus.

    Aug 30, 2011 Marmor MF, Kellner U, Lai TY, Lyons JS, Mieler WF Revised recommendations on screening for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine retinopathy. Ophthalmology 2011, 1182415-422. Lyons JS, Severns ML Detection of early hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity enhanced by ring ratio analysis of multifocal electroretinography. Sep 23, 2015 Patients starting chloroquine CQ or hydroxychloroquine HCQ; i.e. Plaquenil should have a baseline examination that serves as a reference point, as well as to rule out any preexisting maculopathies. The new guideline on screening for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine retinopathy is written in response to evidence from the United States that shows that hydroxychloroquine retinopathy is more common than previously recognised. Implementation of the guideline’s recommendations will prevent iatrogenic visual loss.

    It is imperative that patients and physicians are aware of and watch for this drug’s ocular side effects. Retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine is rare, but even if the medication is discontinued, vision loss may be irreversible and may continue to progress.

    Screening guidelines were updated this year, with some pertinent changes for our profession to note. Cumulative dose is no longer a risk factor, but more of a tool in the screening of our patients. Multifocal Electroretinography mfERG Vision Testing. Multifocal ERG has been recognized as an effective test in helping doctors to diagnose and manage diseases affecting the retina, most notably retinal toxicities. 1-3 This visual electrophysiology technique is a test of localized retinal function through quasi-simultaneous stimulation of different areas of the retina. 4 The American Academy. In 2002, the American Academy of Ophthalmology AAO established ocular examination guidelines for screening patients on Plaquenil therapy. Testing included a comprehensive eye exam that consisted of an assessment of the posterior segment with careful evaluation of associated macular changes or signs of retinal disease. 4 Baseline fundus photography was considered as an optional test.

    DOXYCYCLINE/PLAQUENIL - SO CONFUSED! - Road Back Foundation Jul 26, 2009 Hi Claudia; Welcome to the SD/Lyme of my first symptoms of SD was terrible chest pain,so much so that I ended up in ER thinking it was a geart attack. Every time the tests came back negative and there was nothing wrong with my heart. After a few years of AP it was gone and forgotten. I recently found out I have Lyme and that old pain is back. Since a herx mimics the symptoms of whichever.
