    Long-term progression of hydroxychloroquine retinopathy off the drug marmor

    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.

    Aug 30, 2011 The risk of toxic retinopathy in patients on long-term hydroxychloroquine therapy. JAMA Ophthalmol 2014;153–60. Wolfe F, Marmor MF Rates and predictors of hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. One study identified the utility of monitoring tests to detect progression in patients diagnosed with hydroxychloroquine retinopathy 13 to 40 months after the drug was discontinued. Purpose To characterize the stability or progression of different stages of hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy up to 20 years after stopping the drug. Methods We reviewed findings from 13 patients with initial HCQ retinopathy classified as early patchy photoreceptor damage, moderate ring of photoreceptor thinning or scotoma, or severe retinal pigment epithelial RPE damage.

    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.

  3. The potential for chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate retinopathy to progress after cessation of the drug has long been recognized, 1 - 4 primarily in patients with severe ring scotoma or a visible bull’s-eye lesion in the fundus. Such progression could continue for many years after the drug was stopped.

    Rationale for Screening. 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. Our prevalence data apply to the overall population of long-term hydroxychloroquine users, and risk rises markedly after 10 years of use. However, in rheumatologic practices, many patients benefit from the use of the drug for much longer periods, and it is important to know the annual risk as they stay on the drug regimen. Mar 10, 2017 Although drug cessation, partly due to long half-life of the drug, does not always arrest progression of toxicity, it can limit the extent of structural and functional deficits and reduce the risk.
