BELTRANVDRL test is done for screening Syphilis. VDRL Reactive 1:1 titer is not significant. Significant titer is >1:8. VDRL is a non-specific test for Syphilis. It can be positive in preganacy, infectious :diseases, hepatitis, leprosy, malaria, autoimmune diseases etc. TPHA is the specific confirmatory test for syphilis. Since your TPHA is negative Syphilis is ruled out. If you repeat VDRL test after a month or two that will also become negative.
