In brief: Interesting question
I have seen a few patients with the exact same situation without apparent signs or symptoms of sle or mctd.
All were female patients young to middle age. I followed their labs periodically. It might be worth researching if anti-rnp can be present in general population or possibly false positive. Very interesting, but i don't have the answer.

In brief: More info
Please provide more info! who performed this test and why? This is a highly specific antibody for lupus and mixed connective tissue disease.
It maybe a false positive. What are your symtoms and any meds if you take any!

Do you take hydralazine for high BP?
Dr. Soroosh Armandi
OK. Any other symptoms? And again who ordered these tests?

In brief: see details
An rnp of only 2.
5 means absolutely nothing. A positive must be evaluated in the context of the clinical symptoms.
