Postmarketing cases of life-threatening and fatal cardiomyopathy have been reported with use of Plaquenil and chloroquine. Patients may present with atrioventricular AV block, pulmonary hypertension, sick sinus syndrome or with cardiac complications. ECG findings may include AV, right or left bundle branch block. Our patient likely had baseline mild proximal myopathy secondary to hydroxychloroquine with her acute decompensation due to a second myotoxic drug, colchicine. To our knowledge this is the first documented case of a myopathy induced by both hydroxychloroquine and colchicine supported by unique electron microscopy findings.
