    Retinal changes with the use of hydroxychloroquine


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

    Aug 14, 2017 Pigment deposits in the retina can cause vision changes, according to Steven Ofner, M. D. of Eugene Oregon Eye Care. Signs of retinal damage include blurry or distorted vision, flashes of light or floaters, or loss of night vision. Retinal damage may not improve even after Plaquenil is discontinued. Hydroxychloroquine is a well tolerated medication for various rheumatologic and dermatologic conditions. Its main side effects are gastrointestinal upset, skin rash, headache, and ocular toxicity. Within the eye, hydroxychloroquine negatively impacts the cornea, ciliary body, and retina. 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.

    As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits.

    Chloroquine-induced retinal toxicity was first described in 1959 and the retinal toxic effects of hydroxychloroquine were later described in 1967 3, 4. Hydroxychloroquine has significantly less retinal toxicity and has largely replaced chloroquine as a treatment of inflammatory disease. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ is an anti-malarial medication that has in recent times been utilized as treatment for a variety of autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus, and other inflammatory and dermatologic conditions. Retinal toxicity from HCQ, and its analog, chloroquine, has been recognized for many years.2,3 By some estimates, in the United. Once retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine occurs, it is thought that the retinal changes are permanent and the disease can progress even if hydroxychloroquine is stopped for 1 to 3 years. Newer techniques for evaluation of retinal disease have been developed and these techniques can detect retinal toxicity earlier.
