    Macular oct changes in plaquenil toxicity


    There are hundreds of drugs with potential retinal toxicity—so many that the National Registry of Drug-Induced Ocular Side Effects doesn’t stratify them by incidence or effect, said Frederick W. “Rick” Fraunfelder, MD, director of the Registry and associate professor of ophthalmology at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland.

    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. Baseline fundus photographs and FA are helpful in patients with pre-existing macular pigmentary changes. Patients are classified as being at a higher risk of developing toxicity if they exceed 3 mg/kg/day of chloroquine, or 6.5 mg/kg/day of hydroxychloroquine calculated based on ideal body weight. 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.

    “It’s a pretty rare thing.” Nevertheless, he urged doctors to master the Academy’s new guidelines, because the effects from chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, when they do occur, are severe and often irreversible. “Plaquenil toxicity isn’t even in the top 10, or the top 100” if you’re looking at incidence, he said.

    This is attributable to the fact that significant GCL thinning must occur before RNFL thinning can be detected by SD-OCT. Another study by the same group evaluated both inner and outer retinal changes using SD-OCT in chronically treated HCQ-patients with and without clinically evident HCQ retinopathy. Plaquenil is known to show retinal toxicity which can effect the vision and it is imperative to be able to spot any changes and to contact the patient's rheumatologist to notify them about the changes. The presentation goes over how to spot and what testing to perform to make sure there is no retinal toxicity. Nov 01, 2015 Hydroxychloroquine is metabolized and secreted by both the liver and the kidneys. Therefore, disturbed renal or hepatic function might reduce HCQ clearance and increase the propensity for toxicity. Older age may also be associated with increased risk of macular toxicity, possibly due to the pre-existence.
