    Hydroxychloroquine retinopathy causes destruction of macular rods and cones with sparing of foveal cones. This pattern provides the typical bullseye appearance. RPE migrates into the areas of destructed photoreceptors, causing pigment laden cells to be detected in the outer nuclear and outer plexiform layers 1. Many systemic medications may cause retinal toxicity. One such commonly used medication for dermatologic and rheumatologic inflammatory conditions is hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, a chloroquine derivative. It is used to treat many diseases including malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Importance Hydroxychloroquine sulfate is widely used for the long-term treatment of autoimmune conditions but can cause irreversible toxic retinopathy.

And screening for hydroxychloroquine retinopathy should be given to all patients. GPP All patients should undergo 10-2 Humphrey visual fields testing using a white stimulus, followed by pupillary dilation and imaging with both spectral domain optical coherence tomography SD-OCT and widefield fundus autofluorescence FAF. B 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.
