Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a malignant tumor found in the brain stem, which is the part of the brain that controls many vital functions. DIPG affects children of both sexes equally and is typically diagnosed in patients ages 5-9 and accounts for 10-15% percent of all childhood central nervous system (CNS) tumors.
