No syphilis.: Vdrl (veneral disease research laboratory) is a non-treponemal specific blood test that is widely used to screen populations for syphilis. A negative test if reassuring; a positive (reactive) test has to be followed by a treponemal-specific test such a fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption (fta-abs). ...Read more
It can happen: Revised reply: disregard earlier one if you saw it. At first I misunderstood the question. The newer TP specific IgG/IgM tests (EIA etc) and RPR/VDRL have similar seroconversion times, typically 4-6 weeks. The IgG tests often are positive first, but exact frequency of this isn't yet known -- more study needed. Apologies again if any confusion from earlier reply. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

HIV can be well managed with daily medicines, but can be fatal over time if not diagnosed. Hope this helps. ...Read more
False positive vdrl: The antibody against the syph treponeme produced by a patient with syphilis reacts with an extract of ox heart (diphosphatidyl glycerol). VDRL therefore detects anti-cardiolipin antibodies (IgG, IgM or IgA), visualized through foaming of the test tube fluid, or "flocculation". False positive results happen thru cross reaction of anocther glycoprotein. Can be from drugs, viruses, lupus, RA, etc. ...Read more

Can you have secondary syphilis rash on only one hand? And if it was secondary syphilis will you have a false neg with VDRL& TPHA tests done together?
Negative FTA-ABS&VDRL&TPHA but took Doxy for 28 Days twice (Doc say incase). Still dark spots on palms and neg test. Why? Neurosyphilis?
Screening tests.: Vdrl (venerial disease research laboratory) tests against anti-cardiolipin antibodies and RPR (papid plasma reagin) tests against nonspecific antibodies suggestive of syphilis and are screening tests. Treponemal antibody tests, like fta-abs and mha-tp usually become positive two to five weeks after the initial infection. These are used to confirm syphilis and stay positive, even after therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
