Quinacrine is a drug with a number of different medical applications. It is related to mefloquine. Its main effects are as an antiprotozoal, antirheumatic and an intrapleural sclerosing agent. It is also used "off-label" for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus, indicated in the treatment of discoid and subcutaneous lupus erythematosus, particularly in patients unable to take chloroquine derivatives. As an intrapleural sclerosing agent, it is used as pneumothorax prophylaxis in patients at high risk of recurrence.
