Aug 30, 2011 Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine both belong to the quinolone family and share similar clinical indications and side effects, including retinal toxicity. Chloroquine-induced retinal toxicity was first described in 1959 and the retinal toxic effects of hydroxychloroquine were later described in 1967 3, 4. Most cases of chloroquine retinopathy have developed when a higher than currently recommended 3 mg/kg/day using lean body weight dose was used. 21 A daily dose exceeding 250 mg with a total cumulative dose between 100 and 300 g is customarily needed to produce toxicity. 22 One study showed a 19% incidence of chloroquine retinopathy in patients taking a mean daily dose of 329 mg. 23 On the other hand, with strict adherence to a low dose per day, the incidence of retinal abnormalities is.
