Thank you Trisna Tris for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, the TPHA test or Treponema pallidum haemagglutination is a test used to detect a person's antibodies to the T. palladium bacteria or bacteria that cause syphilis. This test is often used to detect patients who are suspected of having syphilis because the price is quite affordable, it is known to have quite good sensitivity and specificity, and the results are quite fast.

However, from the literature it is also stated that the TPHA test results can also show false positive results (positive test results but it turns out that the sufferer does not have syphilis) in cases such as:
- viral infection
- measles
- chicken pox
- hepatitis
- malaria
- tuberculosis
- malignancy
- leprosy
- lupus

In addition, it is important to know that people with syphilis can usually find symptoms such as:
- sores around the genitals or around the mouth that are not painful
- the wound looks clean
- The wound usually goes away on its own for 1 to 2 months, before finally developing further symptoms such as a red rash on the palms of the hands and feet, leading to nerve or heart problems

Therefore, you should be able to re-confirm this code by checking it with a skin and genital specialist to be able to do a direct examination to confirm the current condition.

Here is an article about syphilis

That's all from me, hope it can help
