At Boston Children's Hospital, we know how difficult a diagnosis of a brain tumor can be, both for your child and for your whole family. That's why our physicians are focused on family-centered care: From your first visit, you'll work with a team of professionals who are committed to supporting all of your family's physical and psychosocial needs.

The most common treatment for DNT is to remove the tumor surgically. Because it is a benign tumor, and prognosis is good even if not the entire tumor is not removed, radiation and chemotherapy are not used. 

What's the long-term outlook for my child?

The outlook for dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors (DNT) is uniformly good, regardless of how much of the tumor is removed.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
