Liver Right upper quadrant abdominal pain

A 26-year-old presents with right upper quadrant abdominal pain and is found to have a large cyst in the right lobe of his liver. X-rays reveal the cyst to have a calcified wall. The cyst is then surgically excised. Examination of this tissue histologically reveals a thick, acellular, laminated eosinophilic wall. The fluid within the cyst is found to be granular and contain numerous small larval capsules with scoleces ("brood capsules"). Which of the following is the most likely diagnosis?

A. Pyogenic liver abscess
B. Amebic liver abscess
C. Hydatid cyst
D. Schistosomiasis
E. Oriental cholangiohepatitis
