US doctors have been left totally perplexed after an 11-year-old girl's inoperable brain tumour looks to have disappeared six months after she was diagnosed.  

Texas schoolgirl Roxli Doss was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an aggressive and rare brain tumour, in June. 

She underwent radiation therapy to shrink the inoperable tumour. And now it seems to have disappeared as it doesn't show up on MRI scans of Roxli's brain.

"When I first saw Roxli's MRI scan, it was actually unbelievable," Dell Childrens Medical Centre's Dr Virginia Harrod told local news station KVUE.

"The tumour is undetectable on the MRI scan, which is really unusual," Dr Harrod says. 

Her parents say it is a miracle sent from God. 

Roxli will continue to be monitored and have precautionary treatment.
