Introduction Although the exact mechanism by which chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ - commonly known as Plaquenil induce retinal toxicity is not well understood, but it is recognized as a serious ophthalmologic concern because it is not treatable. 1 Guidelines from the American Academy of Ophthalmology AAO on screening. Abstract. Background The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations on screening for chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy are revised in light of new information about the prevalence of toxicity, risk factors, fundus distribution, and effectiveness of screening tools. In early cases of Plaquenil toxicity, an early indicator of damage is the appearance of a paracentral scotoma seen on automated visual field testing in the absence of fundus changes. 18 Each of the testing strategies can be used to detect early toxicity changes, but the presentation of the visual field effects will vary. Due to the central area.

It succinctly makes the case for screening, and Remember, any patient who is at a high risk for Plaquenil toxicity should be examined on an annual basis following the baseline exam. The goal of monitoring/screening is to identify early macular damage prior to irreversible vision loss or even before visible signs of bull’s eye maculopathy. Hydroxychloroquine, sold under the brand name Plaquenil Sanofi-Aventis, is an antimalarial drug that has gained widespread use in treating various autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. 1 By some estimates, more than 150,000 patients are on long-term therapy with this medication in America alone. 2 Retinal toxicity associated with HCQ use is.

    Optical coherence tomographic findings in optic nerve. We investigated a case of unilateral optic nerve hypoplasia using spectral domain optical coherence tomography SDOCT. Optical coherence tomography was done on both eyes using 5-line Raster scan for the fovea to analyze the retinal nerve fiber layer thickness, inner retinal layer thickness, outer retinal layer thickness, and optic disc cube scan for the disc.
