Children's patients in Extraordinary Humans documentary

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

Son Pham was brought to 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 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 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.

    Hello We have a daughter who has Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome and we watche the special on Sunday on the National Geographic Channel about this disease and would like to know if there is a way we can get a copy of the special.. We have been trying for a long time to show doctors where we live just what this is because they all have no knowledge of it and even though they go on the web they still look dumbfounded when we try and explain what is going on with our daughter..

So please could you let us know where we can purchase a copy of the show.. Thank you so much.. Sincerely Linda Schliessman /for Marie Rocco our daughter.. age 34
