    SD-OCT is capable of detecting characteristic macular changes of HCQ toxicity. These typical macular abnormalities include loss of the parafoveal ellipsoid zone EZ, parafoveal thinning of the outer nuclear layer ONL and inner plexiform layer IPL, the “flying saucer” sign, and peripapillary nerve fiber layer thinning 12–14.

There is damage visible in the outer retina in a perifoveal distribution.

    Hydroxychloroquine, sold under the brand name Plaquenil Sanofi-Aventis, is an antimalarial drug that has gained widespread use in treating various autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. 1 By some estimates, more than 150,000 patients are on long-term therapy with this medication in America alone. 2 Retinal toxicity associated with HCQ use is. The side effect that is of greatest concern is retinal toxicity. Retinal toxicity of Plaquenil may manifest itself with subtle disturbances of the retinal pigment epithelium which may eventually lead to complete destruction of the macula in the form of bull’s-eye maculopathy. 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.

After two normal visual field exams, does that mean further visual field testing need be done at less frequent intervals, despite continuing plaquenil therapy?
