    Her rheumatologist instructed her to undergo a baseline ocular examination prior to initiating Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine, Sanofi-Aventis) therapy. Toxic maculopathy associated with chloroquine use was first documented in the literature five decades ago.1 In the United States, Plaquenil––an analog to chloroquine––is used to treat a variety of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and several distinct inflammatory disorders.

    At San Antonio Eye Specialists, we monitor Plaquenil patients by testing visual acuity, color vision, central visual field testing, distortion test and a thorough retina exam. If signs of retinopathy are detected, the drug is stopped and vision typically returns to normal. In some cases, vision is permanently affected. Plaquenil’s long half-life in the body can cause irreversible and progressive damage, Dr. Fung said. Similarly, one study reported that 16 women who’d taken hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine, or a combination of the agents, showed no improvement seven years after stopping drug therapy, and progression occurred in six of the cases. 2 The issues are reading, color and night vision. Patient 2 69 year old male presents with a history of long term plaquenil use. Diagnosed with RA at age 19 now has almost no use of his hands. Has had 10 surgeries mostly joint replacements, stopped all drugs last year after a life threatening infection now starting back on therapy.

    Initially, central visual acuity may be unaffected, but the patient may notice related paracentral scotomas that often interfere with reading. The associated classic retinal toxicity is described as a bull’s eye maculopathy (ring of depigmented retinal pigment epithelium that spares the foveal area).
