This form is closely allied to the preceding, but the cell masses are larger and less arranged in definite gland-like spaces, while there is a sparse and delicate stroma. The tissue is soft, and it is specially liable to bleed and to ulcerate. The latter condition is so frequent and characteristic that the tumour often presents itself as a round, shaggy ulcer, which may be very small and insignificant in appearance (see Fig. 393). The bleeding may be slight but frequent, or it may be more considerable and even fatal. This form very commonly shows numerous large tumours in the liver.
