A 25-year-old woman developed “brain death” 48 h after acute methanol poisoning. After the elimination of methanol and the correction of metabolic disorders, organ donation was discussed. The lungs were transplanted into a 46-year-old woman suffering from cystic“ emphysematous-like” lesions as a complication of lymphangioleiomyomatosis. The procedure was not complicated, and we have an uneventful follow-up of > 12 months. In addition to the lungs, the kidneys and the liver were also removed and transplanted with success.
