Abstract: Following the first reports in 1954 of the beneficial effects of chloroquine in cases of lupus erythematosus, this drug and its numerous derivatives have been used extensively in the treatment of systemic and discoid lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. The small dosage of chloroquine used in the prophylaxis of malaria is comparatively free from any serious side effects; higher dosage administered over a prolonged period of time for chronic connective tissue disorders gives rise to concern and requires careful monitoring.
