Summary of

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma

A presumptive diagnosis of DIPG based on classic imaging features, in the absence of a histologic diagnosis, has been routinely employed. Increasingly however, histologic confirmation is obtained for both entry into research studies and molecular characterization of the tumor.[5] New approaches with stereotactic needle biopsy may make biopsy safer.[6-9] Biopsy is recommended for pontine tumors when the diagnosis is uncertain based on imaging findings.
