Case of the week 258

The following case was donated by Drs. Stephanie Slemp, Nicole Hubbard, Morgan McCoy, Ryan Relich, and Bryan Schmitt.

The following liver mass was resected from a 20 year old man.  The man had recently immigrated to the U.S. from South America.  Below is a cross-section of the lesion.  While awaiting the histopathology, what is your differential diagnosis from the gross exam?
