Objective: to investigate the profile of liver donors in the State of Ceara, establishing a relationship with the criteria of the receptors waiting list. Methods: a retrospective documental research was done in a University Hospital in Fortaleza city. Data on all liver donors listed in the liver transplant report archive in the surgical center of the hospital, from 2007 to 2008, were collected, through a structured form. The data is presented in tables and analyzed according to the literature. This study has been approved by the Research Ethics Committee of the Federal Hospital of the University in Fortaleza (003.02.09). Results: we concluded that there is a very good benefit rate (88%), considering the livers that could be donated. The main cause of death among the donors was cranio-encephalic trauma, in the age group between 21 and 30 years. The majority of cases weighed between 61 and 80 kg. The blood type O was the most commonly found. The priority and classification of clinical seriousness criteria of the probable receptor were considered. Conclusions: the donors' profile is in accordance with the criteria of the receptors' waiting list. It should be noted that most of the donors are young males that suffered transit accidents.
