An 8-year-old boy is brought to the physician with a complaint of excessive fatigue and uncomfortable legs when walking or running. On physical examination, the physician notes a reduced dorsalis pedis pulse and some signs of cyanosis of the toes. The boy’s hands show no signs of cyanosis.
On the basis of the physical examination, the physician suspects the presence of what malformation? Why?

The physician suspected high coarctation of the aorta with accompanying patent ductus arteriosus. In high and low coarctation of the aorta, the pulse in the lower part of the body is commonly reduced. The cyanosis of the feet resulted from the spillage of venous blood into the systemic circulation through the patent ductus arteriosus.
