Yes TOF. It somewhat delayed diagnosis. Surgical correction to be tried fairly early. However here it may be tried gradually and in phase manner. Otherwise the result will likely to be unfavorable.Once damage to the system occur any corrections may be futile.

Straight forward Pt of TOF in Hyper cyanotic spell Definitive Rx surgical correction after stabilisation.

Clubbing of fingers in Bronchectasis . In clubbing of fingers the tissues at base of the nail are thickened and the angle between the nail base and adjacent skin of the finger is obliterated . * The nail looses it's longitudinal ridges from side to side and above down words . * pulmonary tuberculosis and empaema and pleural effusions .

I agree with Dr. Manish Verma & Dr.Anoop Modi. stabilise pt. ( canonical spells)
