    Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in hydroxychloroquine retinopathy


    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 after drug cessation.

    Objective To determine whether early toxic effects from hydroxychloroquine HCQ could be detected by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography SD-OCT before symtomatic visual loss occured. Role in screening for HCQ retinopathy due to its quick acquisition and because it is more objective than automated perimetry. Keywords drug toxicity, hydroxychloroquine, photoreceptors, screening test, spectral domain optical coherence tomography Introduction The use of hydroxychloroquine HCQ, an antimalarial drug utilized for a range of rheu- Spectral domain optical coherence tomography SD OCT images, red-free photos, and fundus autofluorescence FAF demonstrate a spectrum of findings seen with different stages of hydroxychloroquine retinopathy. Note the increased signal of choroidal vessels.

    Main Outcome Measures: SD-OCT findings suggestive of HCQ retinopathy before parafoveal ellipsoid disruption. Retrospective clinical data review by the Boston Image Reading Center.

    Although hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity is thought to be rare, recent studies suggest it may have a higher prevalence than previously recognized. A large study examining patients with more than 5 years of HCQ use were evaluated with 10-2 visual fields or spectral-domain optical coherence tomography SD OCT.

Jan 05, 2020 A complete ophthalmologic examination is recommended before starting or within the first year of starting hydroxychloroquine therapy. During this exam, patients should receive a fundus examination; visual fields and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography SD-OCT should be added if maculopathy is present.

    Plaquenil Side Effects on Your Eyes and Vision In some people, Plaquenil can cause a condition called hydroxychloroquine retinopathy, often referred to as bulls-eye maculopathy. The condition sometimes resembles a target, or bulls-eye ring, on the retina surrounding the macula.
