Syphilis


Syphilis is a bacterial infection usually spread by sexual contact. The disease starts as a painless sore — typically on the genitals, rectum or mouth. Syphilis spreads from person to person via skin or mucous membrane contact with these sores.

Overview


Syphilis is treated with antibiotics in early stages of infection, and newly acquired infections tend to be easily cured. Treatment may take longer in patients who have been infected for more than a year. Following treatment, syphilis antibodies should be lower. The Quantitative Rapid Plasma Reagin Test, also known as an RPR Test, is used to diagnose and monitor syphilis during diagnosis and treatment. The quantitative RPR Test measures the level of antibodies present in the blood. It is typically used for monitoring treatment of syphilis infections and/or determining if treatment was successful.
