    Fundus changes on biomicroscopy, including bull's eye maculopathy, are indicative of fairly advanced hydroxychloroquine-induced retinal toxicity which is largely irreversible despite cessation of the medication. Plaquenil Toxicity Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is a medicine commonly used to treat patients with systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. After prolonged use, it can sometimes damage the macula and cause central vision loss. Typically, the macula loses its orange pigment, giving the appearance of a bullseye. On examination, a telltale sign of hydroxychloroquine toxicity is a bilateral change in the retinal pigment epithelium of the macula that gives the commonly described appearance of a bull’s-eye. This is a late finding, however, and too late for screening to be useful.

    Also, your health care professional may be able to tell you about ways to prevent or reduce some of these side effects. These side effects may go away during treatment as your body adjusts to the medicine.

    Characterization of the Chloroquine Resistance Transporter. Mutations in the Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine resistance transporter PfCRT protein confer resistance to the antimalarial drug chloroquine. PfCRT localizes to the parasite digestive vacuole, the site of chloroquine action, where it mediates resistance by transporting chloroquine out of the digestive vacuole.
