    Specifically, SD-OCT can detect loss of the perifoveal photoreceptor inner segment/outer segments line PIL At the macula, an ovoid appearance can appear Recent advances in spectral-domain optical coherence tomography SD-OCT allow for cross-sectional imaging of the retina in vivo to resolutions of 5 to 10 μm. 11 – 16 Adaptive optics AO imaging corrects for ocular aberrations and allows for direct visualization of the photoreceptor mosaic in vivo to resolutions of ≤2 μm. 17 – 20 This report presents the results of SD-OCT and AO imaging on two patients with known hydroxychloroquine retinopathy. Nov 01, 2015 H ydroxychloroquine HCQ; Plaquenil, Sanofi, Bridgewater, NJ is an antimalarial agent that is also commonly used as a treatment for a variety of rheumatologic and dermatologic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus.

    Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography is required to detect early plaquenil-induced structural damage to the macular region. The following instruments can display imaging data in different reports and formats. SPECTRALIS OCT by Heidelburg Engineering; CIRRUS OCT by Carl Zeiss Meditec; RTVue OCT by Optovue 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. Today it is recommended that every single person on Plaquenil get a visual field 10-2 test, plus one of the three other highly sensitive screening tests the FAF fundus autofluorescence imaging, the SD-OCT spectral domain optical coherence, or the multifocal electroretinogram mfERG,” Thomas says.
