    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.

    To report expanded SD-OCT findings of HCQ retinopathy that may assist the clinician in earlier diagnosis. To characterize structural changes of HCQ retinopathy with SD-OCT after drug cessation. Setting Private practice and academic institution. Patient Population Patients at New England Eye Center and Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston in Boston, MA diagnosed with HCQ retinopathy and followed. The multifocal electroretinogram mfERG can provide objective corroboration for visual fields, and fundus autofluorescence FAF can show damage topographically. Modern screening should detect retinopathy before it is visible in the fundus. Toxicity Retinopathy is not reversible, and there is no present therapy. Recognition at an early stage. A risk factor for Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine retinotoxicity is a daily dose that exceeds 5.0 mg of drug per kg of body weight. The tool on the right simply calculates this threshold based on a ppatient’s real body weight. It’s important to understand that the daily dose is only one risk factor for plaquenil retinotoxicity.

    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.
