Test Details & Preparation

  • VDRL (Syphilis Detection Tests) is done to screen for and diagnose infection with Treponema pallidum, the bacterium that causes the STD syphilis.

  • VDRL (Syphilis Detection Tests) is performed when you have symptoms of a syphilis infection or are at risk of being infected with syphilis, such as when you have another STD or HIV, have a sexual partner diagnosed with syphilis, or have engaged in high-risk sexual activity when you are pregnant.

  • A blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm, a scraping from a chancre in the affected area, or cerebrospinal fluid taken via a spinal tap, depending on your clinical presentation.

  • No preparation is needed for a VDRL (Syphilis Detection Tests).

  • A negative blood test means that it is likely that no infection is present. However, a negative screening test means only that there is no evidence of disease at the time of the test.

  • A positive RPR or VDRL screen must be followed by a specific treponemal antibody test.

  • Alternatively, a doctor or laboratory will use a treponemal antibody test as an initial test. A positive result indicates the presence of syphilis antibodies in the blood, but since treponemal antibodies remain positive even after an infection has been treated, it does not indicate whether the person has a current infection or was infected in the past.
