    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.

    Our patient demonstrates the importance of using the new recommended screening tools for the detection of early hydroxychloroquine toxicity. 10-2 HVF, SD-OCT, autofluorescence, or mfERG might have detected the hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity on the day of her presenting symptoms and possibly earlier, potentially limiting the amount of visual loss. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil and chloroquine cause ocular toxicity to various parts of the eye such as the cornea, ciliary body, and retina. Chloroquine can also induce cataract formation; however, no reports of hydroxychloroquine and cataract have been reported 1.

It was discontinued because of abnormal visual fields 6 years ago.

    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.

    Time domain OCT does not have the resolution that spectral domain OCT has, making detection of hydroxychloroquine maculopathy by this modality less sensitive. Nevertheless, time domain OCT machines are more widely available, making it important to be able to recognize toxicity with this test. In this image, the perifoveal inner segment-outer segment junction has been lost at the purple arrows. SD-OCT images demonstrated loss of photoreceptor inner segment/outer segment IS/OS junction and a downward “sink-hole” displacement of inner retinal structures in areas of hydroxychloroquine toxicity corresponding to HVF 10-2 defects and ophthalmoscopic clinical examination findings. SD-OCT scan from a 44-year-old woman with bilateral plaquenil toxicity. There is damage visible in the outer retina in a perifoveal distribution.

    Chloroquine Resistance in Plasmodium falciparum Malaria. Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine resistance is a major cause of worldwide increases in malaria mortality and morbidity. Recent laboratory and clinical studies have associated chloroquine resistance with point mutations in the gene pfcrt. However, direct proof of a causal relationship has remained elusive and most models have posited a multigenic basis of resistance.
