    Apr 10, 2019 Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine belongs to a group of medicines called quinolines. Plaquenil is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. Oct 21, 2010 Duration of treatment with HCQ in these patients ranged from less than one year to 22 years, daily doses from 3.0 to 7.2 mg/kg, and cumulative doses from 146 to 2628 g. Of these patients with no SD OCT abnormalities, three complained of vision changes and eight had abnormalities on HVF 10-2 perimetry. 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, 2. The incidence of HCQ retinopathy is estimated at 1 % after consumption of HCQ for 5 years 3.

    Main Outcome Measures: SD-OCT findings suggestive of HCQ retinopathy before parafoveal ellipsoid disruption. Retrospective clinical data review by the Boston Image Reading Center.

    • New Plaquenil Guidelines.

    Mar 01, 2011 The new guidelines recommend 10-2 automated perimetry, plus at least one of SD-OCT, FAF, or mfERG if they are available. These tests should be performed at baseline and at each subsequent evaluation. Other tests may be considered as well, but are generally insufficiently sensitive to detect early evidence of hydroxychloroquine toxicity. Because early toxicity changes can be revealed on SD-OCT, it is prudent to perform a baseline screening of patients taking Plaquenil. Multifocal ERG has the ability to detect early macular dysfunction, so it should be included as part of baseline screening. A maximum daily dose of Plaquenil of 5.0mg/kg real weight is recommended.
