Organ theft is a belief and a popular urban legend topic that an organized scheme exists to steal organs. The topic is a component of negative views on organ transplantation. The unreliability of urban legend tales is used to prove that organ theft is of minimal concern. However with the proliferation of organ trade, organ theft is still considered plausible even in First World countries, and continues to be popular in fiction.
