The National Geographic Channel's multi-part documentary, Extraordinary Humans, examines different rare medical conditions, including extreme blood and bone abnormalities. Two Boston Children's Hospital patients will be featured in the episode, Rare Anatomy: Blood, airing Monday, March 22 at 9 p.m.

Son Pham was brought to Boston Children's from Vietnam to get treated for an extensive venous malformation on the left side of his face. He was cared for by an interdisciplinary team of specialists from the Boston Children's Vascular Anomalies Center, including John Mulliken, MD and Ahmad Alomari, MD - who were interviewed for this documentary.

Michael Politzer, who has Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome and is a patient of Steven Fishman, MD also appears in the documentary.

This is the second time in one week that Boston Children's has been featured in National Geographic Channel documentary. The first time was on Monday, March 16 in a documentary about the Shang Dynasty.
