monkd  It doesn't explain the sudden death, but I suppose they aren't asking for that! +4

divya  also, a liver infarct is unlikely due to rich dual blood supply. +1  
drzed  @divya Rather, if there was an infarct, it will be hemorrhagic, not pale. +1  
llamastep1  Multiple solid lesions on a healthy liver = meta. I assumed breast wouldn't meta to liver (it's usually GI cancers) but it makes sense since all the blood gets filtered by the liver at some point. TIL! +

The tissue that invades the liver looks entirely different than the liver itself. This is what made me think that its origin is foreign. It doesn't look like fibrosis either, which would usually lead to some degree of constriction.
