Thanks for your query.     
False positive results are seen in many patients with Treponema pallidum haemagglutination (TPHA) test.Certain patients were leprosy also showed false positive TPHA

So it common that where reagin and TPHA tests are reactive in a person who has no history or clinical signs of syphilis, the serum is sent for or referred for TPI and FTA-ABS testing.

TPHA may remain positive for life time also
