Childhood Brain Stem Glioma
Associated Genetic Biomarkers
NCI Definition: An abnormal growth of the cells that comprise the tissues of the brainstem. While the tumor may be histologically benign, it can produce great morbidity due to its location. It presents most commonly in the first two decades of life. 
Childhood brain stem gliomas most frequently harbor alterations in H3F3A .
H3F3A K28M are the most common alterations in childhood brain stem glioma .
