    SITA testing with pattern deviation plots is recommended. Wider test patterns 24-2 or 30-2 are needed for Asian patients due to the possibility of extra-macular manifestations of toxicity. Large test patterns only test 4 points centrally. There was no mention of testing both 10-2 and large test patterns in the AAO guidelines for Asian patients. In 2011, the AAO published updated ocular examination guidelines for screening patients on Plaquenil therapy. 4 Recommended testing includes a comprehensive eye exam with an assessment of posterior segment via dilated funduscopy. OCT imaging This test makes a detailed, three-dimensional image of your eye. Your ophthalmologist can use this image to look for early retinal damage. Multifocal ERG This test looks at cells in the retina called rods and cones. The test measures how well these cells respond to light. It can find retinal damage from Plaquenil.

    Review of systems: Blurred vision, halos, dry eye, dry mouth, gastroesophageal reflux, joint pain Pupils: Reactive to light in each eye from 5 mm in the dark to 2 mm in the light. Extraocular movements: Full, both eyes (OU) Confrontation visual fields: Full OU Intra-ocular pressure The optic nerves appeared healthy with a 0.3 cup-to-disc ratio. Past Ocular History: None Medical History: Sjogren syndrome and inflammatory arthritis, supraventricular tachycardia, anxiety, depression, peptic ulcer disease Medications: prednisone, methotrexate, amitriptyline, ranitidine, estradiol, tizanidine, diltiazem, Restasis Allergies: codeine, droperidol Family History: heart disease, arthritis, cancer Social History: occasional alcohol but no tobacco or intravenous drug use.

    The latest screening guidelines were published in 2016 by the American Academy of Ophthalmology Table 1. The most important risk factors are dosage and duration of use. Dosage greater than 5.0mg/kg over five years dramatically increases the risk of retinal toxicity, and high doses can be exceedingly dangerous. Background. The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations for screening of chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy were published in 2002, but improved screening tools and new knowledge about the prevalence of toxicity have appeared in the ensuing years. The American Academy of Ophthalmology released an updated set of screening recommendations for hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil and chloroquine to account for the many studies that have shown the effects of these medications on the retina 1. It succinctly makes the case for screening, and

    Management of malaria in pregnancy In the recent years, mefloquine and a combination of azithromycin and chloroquine have been evaluated for prevention of malaria in pregnancy. Mefloquine decreased parasite prevalence at delivery but was poorly tolerated 22, and the trial of azithromycin and chloroquine was stopped due to futility i.e. inability to show a clear benefit over the comparator, SP; it, too, was poorly tolerated 23.
