    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.

    Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine can cause toxic retinopathy due to their binding of melanin in the retinal pigmented epithelium RPE as well as direct toxicity to retinal ganglion cells. Early findings include mottling of the RPE and blunted foveal reflex. As the retinopathy progresses, a bull's-eye maculopathy develops, as seen in these photos. The use of hydroxychloroquine HCQ, an antimalarial drug utilized for a range of rheumatologic and dermatologic diseases, is associated with a low incidence of retinopathy 0.5% when used at recommended doses 6.5 mg/kg per day. 1 It has largely replaced chloroquine because of decreased ocular toxicity at high dosages, 2 but can still lead to potentially irreversible visual loss. Macular Society Eye screening for patients taking hydroxychloroquine.

    Hydroxychloroquine and CQ retinopathy are not reversible, and cellular damage may progress even after the drugs are stopped. When retinopathy is not recognized until a bull’seye appears, the disease can progress for years, often with foveal thinning and an eventual loss of visual acuity. OCT. The classic retinal toxicity has been described as “bull's-eye maculopathy,” with the appearance of a ring of parafoveal RPE depigmentation. Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography SD-OCT shows that there is early thinning of outer retinal layers, typically with loss of the parafoveal photoreceptor inner segment/outer segment IS/OS junction and central foveal sparing. There is preservation of the RPE and external limiting membrane.
