This is a nontreponemal screening test for syphilis. False
positive results may occur due to systemic lupus
erythematosus, leprosy, brucellosis, atypical pneumonia,
typhus, yaws, pinta, or pregnancy. Monitoring of RPR is
helpful in assessing effectiveness of therapy.
The message below only applies to reactive results:
The RPR is a non-treponemal-specific test; therefore, a treponemal-specific confirmatory test should be
performed unless prior syphilis infection has been documented for this patient.
