VDRL and TPHA data interpretation

Jan 12, 2014

My partner Syphilis serology (Modified VDRL) is Reactive in 1 : 8 dilution. And His Syphilis TP (CMIA) is Reactive. What does it means? What should we do?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate why the test was performed, whether the test was positive previously and what those results were, and whether any prior treatment was given. Thus it is difficult to say definitely what the results mean except that both syphilis tests are positive.

Can sepsis cause viral load spike?
