VDRL indicates the presence of Anti-phospholipid antibodies. It could mean Syphilis, Rheumatoid arthritis, SLE, Anti-phospholipid antibody syndrome and many other possible causes. It's possibel you have got Penicillin injection for Syphilis but it would be wise to confirm the presence of Syphilis by doing TPHA Test first. If it is negative then you don't need to be treated for Syphilis, but other causes must be looked for.
