In brief: 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).
