This is a non-treponemal screening test for syphilis. False positive results may occur due to systemic lupus erythematosus, malaria, mononucleosis, infectious hepatitis, leprosy, brucellosis, atypical pneumonia, typhus, yaws, pinta, or pregnancy. Positive results should be confirmed with a more specific treponema pallidum antibody test (FTA-ABS). Monitoring of RPR is helpful in assessing effectiveness of therapy.
If RPR Screen is reactive, RPR titer will be performed.
