    Additionally, another exception occurred while executing the custom error page for the first exception. Ototoxicity is, quite simply, ear poisoning (oto = ear, toxicity = poisoning), which results from exposure to drugs or chemicals that damage the inner ear or the vestibulo-cochlear nerve (the nerve sending balance and hearing information from the inner ear to the brain).

    Chloroquine is sometimes tolerated by patients who do not tolerate hydroxychloroquine. Ophthalmologic retinal and visual field testing should be performed at baseline or soon after drug initiation and then at 6 -12 month intervals. Ototoxicity is typically associated with bilateral high-frequency sensorineural hearing loss and tinnitus. Hearing loss can be temporary but is usually irreversible with most agents. Generally, antibiotic-induced ototoxicity is bilaterally symmetrical, but it can be asymmetrical. Chloroquine is related chemically to quinine and, because of this similarity, has been suspected of being an ototoxic drug.1 It is currently being used for the treatment of malaria, amebiasis.

    The parts of the brain that receive hearing and balance information from the inner ear can also be affected by poison, but this is not technically considered ototoxicity and won’t be covered in this information sheet. Because the inner ear is involved in both hearing and balance, ototoxicity can result in disturbances of either or both of these senses.

Chloroquine CQ, a 4-aminoquinoline drug, has been largely used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other connective tissue diseases. Besides the well-known retinal toxicity, its use has been suspected of be associated to ototoxicity. Some reports have described mainly sensorineural hearing loss, tinnitus, sense of imbalance, and cochleovestibular manifestations. Differently from. Antimalarials- Quinine & Chloroquine- Ototoxic effect is due to vasoconstriction in the small vessels of the cochlea and stria vascularis.- The effect is reversible which generally appears on prolonged medication, but deafness is permanent with chloroquine.-

    Retinal Physician - Hydroxychloroquine Maculopathy An. The incidence of retinal toxicity is associated with the cumulative dose of the drug, increasing significantly beyond 1,000 g of HCQ. This cumulative dose is created when the common dose of 400 mg/day is used for 6.8 years. Hydroxychloroquine is metabolized and secreted by both the liver and the kidneys.
