A clinical variant of Fallot’s tetralogy in which the pulmonary stenosis is moderate and a balanced shunt across the ventricular septum allows a pink skin and adequate oxygenation of haemoglobin, in contrast to the usual Fallot patient who is cyanotic with ‘blue’ skin due to persistent O2 desaturation
