In brief: Depends

Pulmonary valve atresia causes intense cyanosis and possibly respiratory distress.
An absent pulmonary valve (tetralogy of fallot with absent pulmonary valve syndrome) presents with a heart murmur and respiratory distress. They usually have very dilated pulmonary arteries that compress the airways.

In brief: Obvious at birth

Pulmonary valve atresia will render the child blue at birth and the pediatric cardiology team will probably be able to make the call in a very short time.
If this has happened to you, i wish you and your child the best of luck; today's surgery helps many of these babies.
