Abstract

The mechanism of formation of active and chronic false positive reactions serologic syphilis tests is described. Spontaneous negativation of acute false positive serologic reactions develops in 6 months. Chronic false positive serologic reactions persist for a long time, sometimes during the whole life time. Chronic false positive serologic reactions for syphilis are the diagnostic criteria for systemic lupus. Chronic false positive serologic reactions before and during the evaluation of clinical symptoms in other connective tissue diseases, endocrinologic, oncologic pathology are described. The Hughes ’syndrome is the most often cause of false positive serologic syphilis tests. 3 cases of false positive serologic syphilis tests in patients with benign uterus tumors are presented.
