@ Dr Ganger: there is no severe fibrosis or cirrhosis upon elastography, and the liver function is normal. Howover the liver surface seems slighty irregular on MRI, and there are two hypervascular lesions on MRI, not suspicious for HCC. There is no ascites. She underwent several band ligations for esophageal variceal bleeding in her early years. Current MELD is 9 points. I would by happy to receive the contact info of Professor Riad Salem (email@example.com).
@ Dr Rautou: 1) bone marrow study showed no abnormalities.
Thanks for your advice,
