RPR (Monitor) with Reflex to Titer  

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.
