Epithelioid Angiosarcoma (EA) is a special subtype of angiosar coma, which is common in skin and connective tissue, and its in cidence reaches the peak in men aging over 60 years old. EA oc curring in masticator space was very rarely reported. We reported EA in a young woman with a lesion located in the right masticator space. Plain Computed Tomography (CT) scan showed irregular blocky soft tissue density shadow with unclear boundary. After enhancement, the lesions showed obviously uneven enhancement in the arterial phase, while the lesions showed uneven decreased enhancement in the venous phase, and there was necrotic tissue with no enhancement.

A Novel Frameshift Mutation in GPT2 Gene Found by Whole Exome Sequencing Causing Mental Retardation and Seizures
1.1. Objective: Some studies reported GTP2 gene missense mu tations are associated with neurodevelopmental delay with spastic paraplegia and microcephaly. Here, we report a new frameshift mutation of this gene with new clinical presentations in an Iranian family

Why Korean Teens Started Declining in Height Growth in The Midst of Economic Prosperity: Despite Increasing Supply of Animal Protein?
In ten years after the end of WWII, Japan’s economy recovered to the prewar level and achieved fast and steady progress toward the 1990s. People, the young in particular learned to eat animal prod ucts and the teens grew in height nearly 10 cm by the early-1990s and plateaued in stature after that. South Korea was two decades behind Japan in economic development due to the Korean War (1950-53) and then has achieved uninterrupted progress to parallel with Japan in respect of living standard by the turn of the century.
