Interpretation and Follow-up

Slide 14

In the first scenario, you’re seeing a patient with no history, or an unknown history, of syphilis. The result of the screening treponemal test is negative, so no additional testing is required. We interpret this result as “no serologic evidence of syphilis” and in most situations no further testing is required, unless clinically indicated, such as a suspected early syphilis infection.
