    Pattern of Retinopathy: Although the locus of toxic damage is parafoveal in many eyes, Asian patients often show an extramacular pattern of damage. Dose: We recommend a maximum daily HCQ use of 5.0 mg/kg real weight, which correlates better with risk than ideal weight.

    Corneal verticillata, also called vortex keratopathy, are one type of corneal deposits. Verticillata are readily recognizable by their distinct appearance as fine, golden-brown or gray opacities that are almost always bilateral. The opacities branch out from a central whorl, usually across the inferior cornea. The most common causes of verticillata include Amiodarone Sep 15, 2014 The corneal deposits, known as verticillata, are asymptomatic, reversible, and not considered an indication to stop the medication. Unlike the benign verticillata, retinal toxicity can be visually significant, is largely irreversible, and can progress after cessation of the medication. Corneal verticillata is recognizable as fine golden-brown or gray opacities in the basal epithelium that branch out from a central whorl, usually across the inferior cornea. The deposits do not stain and are almost always bilateral 1.

    Risk of Toxicity: The risk of toxicity is dependent on daily dose and duration of use. There are no similar demographic data for CQ, but dose comparisons in older literature suggest using 2.3 mg/kg real weight.

These corneal changes are not a direct marker for retinal damage, are not associated with visual loss, and in contrast SIDE EFFECTS. The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of PLAQUENIL or other 4-aminoqunoline compounds. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.
