Multiple pancreatic cyst in combination with central nervous system hemangioma may be associated with Von Hippel-Lindau disease. The disease manifests with other systemic benign and malignant lesions. The risk of associated malignancy makes it imperative to review target organs before proceeding to transplantation, but does not preclude it completely if proper evaluation is performed. We present a case of an organ donor found to have multiple pancreatic cysts. Evaluation and transplantation decisions are discussed.
