Liver involvement is often observed in several hematological disorders, resulting in abnormal liver function tests, abnormalities in liver imaging studies, or clinical symptoms presenting with hepatic manifestations. In hemolytic anemia, jaundice and hepatosplenomegaly are often seen mimicking liver diseases. In hematologic malignancies, malignant cells(More)
The band calculation scheme for f electron compounds is developed on the basis of the dynamical mean field theory (DMFT) and the LMTO method. The auxiliary impurity problem is solved by a method named as NCAf 2 v', which includes the correct exchange process of the f 1 → f 2 virtual excitation as the vertex correction to the non-crossing approximation (NCA)(More)
The prognosis of relapsed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in elderly patients is dismal, even if the AML exhibits a good prognostic karyotype, such as inv(16)(p13.1q22). We present a 72-year-old female with AML with inv(16)(p13.1q22) who suffered five episodes of relapse with temporary complete remission. Maintenance chemotherapy with oral cytarabine ocfosfate(More)
