Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome (SGS) is an autosomal dominant connective tissue disorder. To date, this report is the first account of a successful pancreas transplantation from an SGS donor. The similarity of the outcomes from previous year-on-year pancreas transplantations at the same center demonstrates promising results. Increasing awareness of the utilization of donors with SGS may promote expansion of center-specific criteria for organ acceptance. Therefore, every consideration should be given for use of organs from donors with this genetic abnormality because there is no evidence to suggest poorer allograft viability.
