- Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) is an anti-inflammatory drug that is used to treat some autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. This drug can damage the retina by causing a condition called plaquenil-induced retinal toxicity, which may lead to vision loss. However, most people taking plaquenil do not develop this problem. Researchers are interested in studying whether differences in a person s genes explain why some people develop plaquenil-induced retinal toxicity while others do not.
- To investigate possible correlations between certain genes or genetic mutations and plaquenil-induced retinal toxicity.
The objective of this study is to investigate whether there is a correlation between genetic mutations, beginning with an analysis of ABCA4, and Plaquenil -induced retinal toxicity and to describe the phenotype of Plaquenil -induced retinal toxicity.
The study will enroll 45 patients, 18 years of age or older, found to have Plaquenil -induced retinal toxicity. Seventy-five volunteers with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), or Sj(SqrRoot)(Delta)gren s syndrome and history of Plaquenil use, but without evidence of retinal toxicity, will also be recruited.
The study is an observational study with 1-2 outpatient visits to the NEI clinic or review of medical records for off-site participants. All participants will provide a blood sample for genetic analysis.
Clinical examination and blood samples will be used for genetic testing and mutation identification. The outcome of this study is to identify genetic mutations, starting with those in ABCA4 gene, associated with retinal toxicity in participants with a history of Plaquenil use.

1. Participants with other known (genetic) retinal disease including but not limited to: Stargardt s disease and cone or cone-rod dystrophy whose diagnosis preceded their Plaquenil use. Participants with no known previous genetic diagnosis but with clinical findings associated with a genetic diagnosis, such as parafoveal or macular flecks which are associated with Stargardt s disease or fundus flavimaculatus, will also be excluded.
