    However, the retinopathy, described as a bull’s-eye, is untreatable and tends to progress even after cessation of the drug. Accordingly, in recent years there has been an increased emphasis on more effective screening measures utilizing multimodal imaging techniques to elicit early signs of toxicity before the characteristic advanced changes manifest clinically.

    Canthaxanthine is a vitamin A derivative used in the treatment of psoriasis and eczema, and had been used previously as an oral tanning agent. Toxicity has been shown after high-dose oral therapy of greater than 0.5 mg/kg/day. Risk factors for toxicity. Reported risk factors for toxicity include daily dose 400 mg, or 6.5 mg/kg ideal/lean body weight for short individuals; cumulative dose 1000 g; duration of use 5 years; renal or hepatic dysfunction; obesity; age 60 years; and pre-existing retinal disease or maculopathy 31.

  4. Aug 29, 2014 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. Several risk factors may increase the likelihood of retinal toxicity from Plaquenil such as.

Aug 06, 2014 By generating high-resolution, cross-sectional images of the retina in vivo, SD-OCT may detect significant structural alterations prior to development of visible HCQ retinopathy. Previously described OCT findings in HCQ toxicity include loss of the external limiting membrane, disruption of the outer ellipsoid zone. Lyons emphasizes the importance of annual screening and says that, although annual screening is recommended for everyone taking Plaquenil, it is imperative for people who have been taking the medication for more than 10 years, who have a higher incidence of retinal toxicity.

    Chloroquine And Hydroxychloroquine Toxicity - StatPearls. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine bind to melanin in the retinal pigment epithelium RPE and cause damage to the macular cones outside of the fovea. The drugs inhibit RPE lysosome activity, reduce phagocytosis of shed photoreceptor outer segments causing an accumulation of outer receptor segments.
