VDRL stands for Venereal Disease Research Laboratory. This test is used to detect syphilis or sexually transmitted infection. Treponema pallidum bacteria cause syphilis. It infects by penetrating in the lining of the mouth and genital area. The main purpose of this test is to check antibodies produced by the body in response to antigens damaged by bacteria. Antibodies are produced by an immune system to fight against bacteria or toxins. Testing for antibodies helps the doctors to know whether a patient has syphilis or not.
RPR stands for Rapid plasma Reagin. It is used to screen syphilis. It detects the non-specific antibodies produced by the body while fighting the infection. Syphilis can be fatal if it is not treated on time. RPR test helps to know the diagnosis of active infection. There are 4 stages in syphilis. Stages are primary, secondary, latent, tertiary stage.
The primary stage appears typically in 10 days to 3 months. The first sign of syphilis is small or painless sore on the skin. In secondary stage, after 2 to 10 weeks after the first sore was visible, you may experience sores in vagina, mouth or anus, fever, weight loss, swollen glands, hair loss, headache, fatigue, muscle ache, etc. if secondary stage is left untreated the disease will progress to latent stage. In some cases, symptoms of syphilis will never come back. But this doesn’t mean that the infection is gone. It will enter the next stage. Tertiary is the final stage. It will appear after 10-30 years after the initial phase. In this stage, some serious damage can occur. Some serious complication might be permanent organ damage or death.
