The final RPR titer was positive (1:128), and a confirmatory FTA-ABS was also positive.
VDRL or RPR are also performed (in addition); EIA/ IgG is an alternative screening test; FTA-abs or EIA-IgM may well be the first tests to be positive if primary syphilis is suspected; the first test is reactive in 70 to 90% of the cases.
Historically, a "shotgun" approach was used, involving computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), an electrocardiogram (EKG), urinalysis, renal ultrasound, complete blood count, chemistries, a thyroid-stimulating hormone test, an erythrocyte sedimentation rate, a TORCH profile, and an FTA-ABS test for syphilis, among others.
Data were collected by all women answered a questionnaire and by investigating blood sample VDRL test and FTA-ABS test.
