  5. Aug 06, 2014 Previously described OCT findings in HCQ toxicity include loss of the external limiting membrane, disruption of the outer ellipsoid zone, parafoveal thinning of the outer nuclear layer and RPE damage. 6,7,10 Despite these various changes, numerous studies have supported the notion that relative “foveal resistance” is common in HCQ toxicity, as demonstrated by preservation of the subfoveal outer retinal layers, accounting for the intact central visual acuity that can be seen even in.

    Apr 30, 2013 SD-OCT scan from a 44-year-old woman with bilateral plaquenil toxicity. There is damage visible in the outer retina in a perifoveal distribution. Plaquenil-induced toxicity usually will not occur before five years of taking the drug. “Eye damage due to Plaquenil is not common,” he says. “Rarely will anybody who has good vision and minimal symptoms develop loss of central vision or ability to read if annual screening is done and visual are symptoms reported as soon as they occur so the medication can be stopped if toxicity occurs. Remember, any patient who is at a high risk for Plaquenil toxicity should be examined on an annual basis following the baseline exam. The goal of monitoring/screening is to identify early macular damage prior to irreversible vision loss or even before visible signs of bull’s eye maculopathy.
