RPR Syphilis Interpretation

May 27, 2012

I was tested positive for Syphilis. Titer 1:1 w/positive FTA-ABS. The Physician referred me to the Health Department for a second test and treatment.

Have you seen cases where people with titer 1:1 do not respond to the treatment?

If I still continue showing a positive result after treatment what it means?

I am very concerned and would appreciate your reply/comments about it.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Almost all people will respond to treatment and many will remain positive for years after treatment has been completed.

PNP! Safe Anal but not oral and caught Gonorrhea.
