    Abstract OBJECTIVE To study maternal and fetal outcome of pregnancy in patients with lupus who were exposed to hydroxychloroquine HCQ. We conducted a randomized, controlled study to assess the need for hydroxychloroquine HCQ during lupus pregnancy and to assess safety. Twenty consecutive pregnant patients with similar characteristics were enrolled. The HCQ group included eight patients with systemic lupus erythematosus SLE and two with discoid lupus erythematosus DLE. Hydroxychloroquine Pregnancy Warnings Animal studies have revealed evidence of fetal harm. Use of chloroquine and other 4-aminoquinolines in high doses and for prolonged durations has been associated with neurological disturbances and interference with hearing, balance, and vision in the fetus.
