I recently had a test for syphilis and on the initial rest of RPR was reactive and the RPR Quant. was 1:2. Then they did a test for Treponema Antibodies was negative. Should I be worried about these results?

You don't indicate why the test was performed and whether you have any symptoms or other ongoing medical conditions (and what your HIV status and numbers are). This situation can occur and likely requires additional testing to confirm the diagnosis.
