The echocradiogram report is describing a small hole in the wall between the 2 lower heart chambers called a ventricular septal defect (VSD), which is a very common congenital abnormality in childrem.  It is one of the most common causes of heart murmurs in children after their birth.  A VSD measuring 2.5 mm is small, and has a high chance of closing over the course of the first few years of life, especially when it is located in the muscular part of the wall.  These holes do not increase in size. The patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a small hole between the upper heart chambers that all babies are born with.  It usually closes up over time. The report suggests that the other heart valves and chambers are functioning well, and it appears that your child is gaining weight well.  There should be no sypmtoms related to this small hole.  His prognosis is excellent.
