    Hydroxychloroquine HCQ is a 4-aminoquinoline which differs from chloroquine CQ in the addition of a hydroxyl group. Initially used as antimalarials, both drugs have now become mainstays in the management of rheumatic diseases principally systemic lupus erythematosus SLE and rheumatoid arthritis RA. In the last two years, CARM has received two reports of ophthalmological reactions associated with hydroxychloroquine. Of the two reports, one report was of scotoma and one report was of retinal disorder. Retinopathy is a serious adverse reaction due to the progressive and irreversible nature of the changes. The second report describes the first case of hydroxychloroquine cardiomyopathy described in a patient with scleroderma. These novel findings will add to the present knowledge of hydroxychloroquine-induced cardiomyopathy in its pathology and its implication for treatment of rheumatic diseases.
