    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil was originally used to treat malaria and is now used mostly to treat rheumatological and dermatological diseases. Its most frequent use now is for Rheumatoid Arthritis RA and Lupus and is often very effective in mitigating the joint and arthritic symptoms these diseases can cause. The toxicity resulting from the intake of Plaquenil is due to its affinity for melanin -containing structures in the body. With prolonged usage, metabolites in the drug accumulate in the retina. The drug remains in these parts even if the patients stopped taking the drugs. Hydroxychloroquine is metabolized and secreted by both the liver and the kidneys. Therefore, disturbed renal or hepatic function might reduce HCQ clearance and increase the propensity for toxicity. Older age may also be associated with increased risk of macular toxicity, possibly due to the pre-existence of age-related macular changes that might not allow for the identification of early signs of toxicity.
