My patient who wishes to work abroad is TPHA Positive .How can I certify him that he is not having active syphilis?
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
Though the specific requirements will no doubt depend on the country of interest, I would think that a letter certifying that the patient has completed an appropriate course of antibiotic treatment (for example, three penicillin injections for late latent syphilis) would suffice.
