|Syphilis positive and possible HIV +
Jun 3, 2012
I was tested positive for Syphilis RPR titer 1:1 with positive FTA-ABS. Having in mind the titer 1:1 (minimally reactive)
it is more likely that I can be HIV + as well? or
people infected with HIV+ will have higher titer?
I had Syphilis in the past it was treated. Therefore, I am still showing a minimal titer.

The titer is not necessarily correlated with HIV positivity.
