Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't indicate why this test was obtained and whether there are any signs or symptoms of syphilis, and whether you have any recent risk factors. So it is difficult to determine what the test result means. It should likely be confirmed with a different type of test, and if that is positive, then treatment would be indicated.
