Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
The TPHA test is indicative of syphilis exposure, though not necessarily an indicator of active or untreated disease.
I am not aware of any restrictions on travel based on this test, though certain countries may have requirements if a visa is required on entry.
