    Recent studies estimate that about 1% of patients develop toxic maculopathy after 5 years of treatment with plaquenil or chloroquine. The risk of maculopathy is associated with cumulative dose level of 1,000 grams and it usually takes 5-7 years for patients on the standard treatment of 250-400 milligrams per day to reach that level. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine belong to the quinolone family. They are related drugs with similar clinical indications for use and similar manifestations of retinal toxicity, although their therapeutic and toxic doses differ. Some patients, toxicity may first present as pericentral retinopathy and thus requires screening outside the macula. We assume chloroquine retinopathy follows a similar course as hydroxychloroquine retinopathy and so these guidelines also apply to patients taking chloroquine therapy.
