Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is an aggressive brain tumour with no effective treatment and no chance of long-term survival . When this brain tumour grows back after the initial radiation therapy, it is known as progressive or recurrent DIPG.
This study will investigate how long a second treatment with radiation (re-irradiation) keeps progressive or recurrent DIPG from growing again and the overall survival of these patients. All children enrolled will be treated with re-irradiation.
Disease stage: Progressive or Recurrent
Patient age range: less than 18 years of age
