The “flying saucer” sign was present in all three of the five patients who presented with early HCQ retinopathy. Two patients presented with advanced HCQ retinopathy and moderate to severe vision loss. SD-OCT is capable of detecting characteristic macular changes of HCQ toxicity. These typical macular abnormalities include loss of the parafoveal ellipsoid zone EZ, parafoveal thinning of the outer nuclear layer ONL and inner plexiform layer IPL, the “flying saucer” sign, and peripapillary nerve fiber layer thinning 12 – 14.
