    Hello all, I am currently new to this site and ran across the discussion about stopping Plaquenil. I have been taking Plaquenil for about 8-9 months and thought that it was not helping me because I still have a fair amount of joint pain, fatigue, muscle pain and so many other issues. We report two cases of hydroxychloroquine-induced hyperpigmentation presenting in a 50-year-old Caucasian female case 1 and a 78-year-old female case 2, both receiving 400 mg per day. Case 1 had an arthritis predominant undifferentiated connective tissue disease, which was treated with hydroxychloroquine for 4-5 years. Drug-induced pigmentation is not generally associated with any systemic toxicity and thus has an excellent prognosis. With some exceptions, pigmentation is usually reversible and slowly fades with discontinuation of the drug.
