DIPG stands for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. It is a tumor on the brain stem and most diagnoses occur between the ages of 5 and 7. There are less than 300 diagnoses per year in the United States. The prognosis for DIPG is varied but less than 10% of patients with this tumor live two years past diagnosis.
