Therefore, disturbed renal or hepatic function might reduce HCQ clearance and increase the propensity for toxicity. Older age may also be associated with increased risk of macular toxicity, possibly due to the pre-existence of age-related macular changes that might not allow for the identification of early signs of toxicity.
