welcome to HealthcareMagic
If your sister did not have any sexual contacts then the chances of getting VDRL is as good as NIL .If it was tested positive in one laboratory & negative in other then it can be a error in typing of report also.For confirmation get a repeat test from some big and reputed lab or hospital;if that test is negative then she does not require treatment.
Take care.
