Chloroquine retinopathy is a known complication of long-term use of chloroquine. This retinopathy can appear even after usage of chloroquine has stopped. The present case report describes the history and clinical features of chloroquine retinopathy developing a decade after discontinuing the drug.
We describe a case of recurrent spontaneous vitreous haemorrhage due to congenital retinal arterial loop. The pre-optical coherence tomography showed the loop to be intraretinal rather than pre retinal. Thus the term pre retinal arterial loop is a misnomer. The arterial loop is in the superficial layer of retinal nerve fiber layer. We also demonstrated… (More)

Supersensitivity developed in the central dopaminergic system of the rat after 21 days of chronic haloperidol injection. This was indicated by a higher level of apomorphine-elicited stereotypic behavior and by higher concentrations of striatal 3H-spiroperidol binding sites in haloperidol-treated rats compared to saline-treated controls. The chronic… (More)
