The associated classic retinal toxicity is described as a bull’s eye maculopathy ring of depigmented retinal pigment epithelium that spares the foveal area. Nov 01, 2015 Typically, cases of HCQ toxicity may demonstrate parafoveal thinning and loss of the ellipsoid zone, with preservation of the foveal architecture — creating the “flying saucer” shape Figures 1 and 2. Advanced cases may present with loss of the ellipsoid zone in the foveal area and also widespread diffuse thinning of the outer retinal.

    Clinical Pharmacokinetics and Metabolism of Chloroquine. This paper presents the current state of knowledge on chloroquine disposition, with special emphasis on stereoselectivity and microsomal metabolism. In addition, the impact of the patient’s physiopathological status and ethnic origin on chloroquine pharmacokinetics is discussed. In humans, chloroquine concentrations decline multiexponentially.
