In August 2006, the patient was vaccinated with the first dose of Gardasil, at the end of November 2006 with the second dose. She received the vaccination at the pediatrician''s office. The patient was tested for syphilis " a couple of days" later. The patient''s Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) test titers were 1-256 (high), with a negative Fluorescent Antibody Absorption (FTA) test. The patient was tested again approximately one week later and the RPR titers were still high but lower. The physician mentioned that the patient underwent other antibody tests such as serum antinuclear antibodies (ANA) test, and Lyme disease test. The results were normal for those tests. The physician stated that the patient had not been sick with the flu nor mononucleosis, and that the patient had tested negative for other sexually transmitted diseases. Additional information has been requested.
