VDRL is positive in syphilis -sexually transmitted disease
but some time false positive result also there
means though u have no syphilis still u have positive VDRL
some viruses (mononucleosis, hepatitis), drugs, pregnancy, rheumatic fever, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and leprosy are producing false positive result
do TPHA for confirmation
VDRL usually detects diseases which cause high Cardiolipin antibodies in the blood. Syphilis is one of them VDRL test is NOT diagnostic of Syphilis. Do a blood test called TPHA which will correctly diagnose Syphilis.
