Abstract

A 40-year-old female is admitted for paroxysmal episodes of exertional dyspnoea, with associated cyanosis, improving with squatting, and a holosystolic murmur radiating to the interscapular area. Echocardiography showed a subaortic ventricular septal defect with left-to-right shunt and overriding aorta. The characteristic murmur prompted us to seek right ventricular outflow tract obstruction. Magnetic resonance was performed, confirming Tetralogy of Fallot, and corrective surgery was performed.
