    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.

    Thirty eyes with HCQ retinopathy were followed with SD-OCT after drug cessation. Findings before disruption of the parafoveal EZ included parafoveal outer nuclear layer ONL thinning, disruption of the parafoveal interdigitation zone, and reduced reflectivity of the parafoveal EZ. Mar 02, 2018 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. The new guideline also makes recommendations regarding the techniques and. SD Spectral Domain OCT With early Hydrochloroquine retinopathy, SD-OCT can detect outer layer retinal abnormalities Specifically, SD-OCT can detect loss of the perifoveal photoreceptor inner segment/outer segments line PIL At the macula, an ovoid appearance can appear described as “flying saucer” sign by Chen, et al18 ILM IPL OPL

    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.

Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography demonstrating advanced hydroxychloroquine retinopathy with parafoveal loss of the external limiting membrane, disruption of the outer ellipsoid zone, thinning of the outer nuclear layer and disruption to the underlying retinal pigment epithelial layer A. Apr 20, 2011 8. Kellner S, Weinitz S, Kellner U. Spectral domain optical coherence tomography detects early stages of chloroquine retinopathy similar to multifocal electroretinography, fundus autofluorescence and near-infrared autofluorescence. Br J Ophthalmol. 2009 Nov;93111444-7. 9. Lai TY, Ngai JW, Chan WM, Lam DS. Today it is recommended that every single person on Plaquenil get a visual field 10-2 test, plus one of the three other highly sensitive screening tests the FAF fundus autofluorescence imaging, the SD-OCT spectral domain optical coherence, or the multifocal electroretinogram mfERG,” Thomas says.
