Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
VDRL test is done to check for syphilis. Syphilis is caused by three types of organisms. Out of the three, one t. pallidum is negative but the overall test is weakly positive. Please get the test repeated and if it is positive again it is better to take the treatment.
