    Hydroxychloroquine sulfate HCQ, Plaquenil is an analogue of chloroquine CQ, an antimalarial agent, used for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders. Its use has been associated with severe retinal toxicity, requiring a discontinuation of therapy. To detect chloroquine toxicity, the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends performing fundus examinations, 10-2 automated visual fields, and at least one objective test multifocal electroretinography mfERG, fundus autofluorescence imaging, or spectraldomain optical coherence tomography SD-OCT. 1 By contrast, Amsler grid testing. 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.
