    Plaquenil myopathy


    Cessation of the culprit drug, along with aggressive afterload reduction therapy, has been associated with halting of disease progress and even improvement in patients' clinical and histologic status. (B) Doppler tissue imaging of lateral mitral annulus documents Ea 7.2cm/s and Aa velocity 2.7cm/s. (C) Pulsed Doppler of mitral inflow demonstrates left ventricular restrictive physiology. At presentation (left) electron micrograph (magnification ×11000) shows central replacement and displacement of sarcomeres by marked accumulation of secondary lysosomes including myeloid bodies (MB) and curvilinear bodies (CL). Echocardiography is a fundamental tool in the identification and assessment of patients with cardiomyopathy, with particular utility in the detailed assessment of biventricular systolic and diastolic function. This appearance is typical and characteristic of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine toxicity.

    Hydroxychloroquine-Induced Myopathy. A 70-year-old woman with a history of undifferentiated connective tissue disease was admitted for work-up of shortness of breath and progressive weakness over the course of 1 year. She had been treated with hydroxychloroquine HCQ for last 5 years. Mar 01, 2011 New clinical and ultrastructural findings in hydroxychloroquine-induced cardiomyopathy a report of 2 cases. Hum Pathol. 2007; 58–1863. Moved Permanently. The document has moved here.

    We present a case of a 51-year-old woman with hydroxychloroquine-induced restrictive cardiomyopathy and correlate clinical, echocardiographic and anatomic pathologic findings both at initial presentation and following treatment. Electron micrograph (magnification ×6700) shows normal myocyte ultrastructure with secondary lysosomes that would appear by light microscopy as lipofuscin pigment.

It also provides an objective and non-invasive means of assessing treatment response. (F) Pulsed Doppler of hepatic vein flow shows blunting of systolic flow with prominent atrial flow reversals in both inspiration and expiration. At 2 years (right) myocardial biopsy shows near complete resolution of electron microscopic findings of hydroxychloroquine toxicity. (D) Pulsed Doppler of pulmonary vein flow shows normal forward flow characteristics (systolic velocitydiastolic velocity) but with persisting prominent atrial flow reversals in both inspiration and expiration.

    Hydroxychloroquine and colchicine neuromuscular toxicity is well documented. The largest literature review on colchicine myopathy was conducted by Wilbur and Makowsky in 2004 where a database search found 75 cases. Most patients presented with proximal muscle weakness. A wide range of treatment durations were noted from 4 days to 11 yrs with cumulative daily doses of 1.4 ± 0.96 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.

    Side Effects of Plaquenil Hydroxychloroquine, Warnings, Uses Feb 19, 2020 SIDE EFFECTS. The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of PLAQUENIL or other 4-aminoqunoline compounds. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.
