    Plaquenil corneal toxicity


    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.

    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. The risk of a toxicity sharply increases after 5 years, with majority of cases of retinotoxicity occurring in patients that have had a cumulative dose exceeding 1000g of hydroxychloriquine Plaquenil. This level is reached in about 7 years with the most common daily dose of Plaquenil, 400 mg/day 200 bid. Plaquenil related eye complications are not common. Plaquenil can produce pigment changes in the macula of the retina. The retina is the part of the back of the eye that you see with. The macula is the central part of the retina responsible for central fine vision. With Plaquenil related toxicity, the pigment in the macula can change and alter vision by producing blurring and distortion of objects.

    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.

The associated classic retinal toxicity is described as a bull’s eye maculopathy ring of depigmented retinal pigment epithelium that spares the foveal area.

    The toxicity resulting from the intake of Plaquenil is due to its affinity for melanin -containing structures in the body. With prolonged usage, metabolites in the drug accumulate in the retina. The drug remains in these parts even if the patients stopped taking the drugs. Plaquenil toxicity is typically asymptomatic in early stages, but over time can lead to severe vision loss and retinal damage. Clinical research has resulted in precise screening protocols and safe dosing guidelines to prevent ocular toxicity and detect retinal damage at an early stage. Etiology Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine bind to melanin in the retinal pigment epithelium RPE and cause damage to the macular cones outside of the fovea.

    Chloroquine is the generic form of the brand-name prescription medicine Aralen, which is used to prevent and treat malaria — a mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite — and to treat amebiasis, an infection of the intestines caused by a parasite.

    Rheumatoid arthritis, monitoring of DMARDs - BPJ 17 October 2008 Commonly used oral DMARDs include methotrexate, sulfasalazine, hydroxychloroquine, low-dose prednisone and a newer agent, leflunomide. Other less commonly used DMARDs include azathioprine, cyclosporin and sodium aurothiomalate intramuscular gold. Biological DMARDS, tumour necrosis factor TNF inhibitors, are discussed below.
