While today it is used to treat autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, it was originally used as an anti-malaria drug. Chloroquine CQ is used to prevent and treat malaria and amebiasis,1 while hydroxychloroquine HCQ, a less toxic metabolite of chloroquine, is used to treat rheumatic diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus SLE, rheumatoid arthritis RA, juvenile idiopathic arthritis JIA and Sjogren's syndrome.2 The toxicity resulting from the intake of Plaquenil is due to its affinity for melanin -containing structures in the body.
