In brief: Congenital defect

Tetralogy of fallot is a congenital defect of the heart in which the there is a hole in the ventricular septum ( wall that separate the two ventricles) of the heart, overriding of the septal defect by the aorta and atresia of the pulmonary artery, it causes mixing of arterial blood with venous blood , therefore hypoxemia ( low level of oxygen) to the general circulation, pulmonary HTN may occur.
