Sir, We agreed with the conclusions of Latasiewicz et al 1 ‘Hydroxychloroquine retinopathy an emerging problem’, which cited cases of hydroxychloroquine HCQ-induced retinal damage. Three patients had received 400 mg HCQ daily for over 15 years equaling 4.93 mg/kg/day in two and 5.6 mg/kg/day in one and all developed maculopathies of varying severity.

This condition where hydroxychloroquine can affect the retina and vision when taken for a long period of time is called “hydroxychloroquine retinopathy”. Hydroxychloroquine sulfate HCQ, Plaquenil is an analogue of chloroquine CQ, an antimalarial agent, used for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders. Its use has been associated with severe retinal toxicity, requiring a discontinuation of therapy. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria.
