You either had a false positive or you have had it since birth. Most likely a false positive, here are things that can cause a false positive:
malaria
leptospirosis
leprosy
mononucleosis
lupus
lymphogranuloma venereum
mycoplasmal pneumonia
typhus
cat-scrath fever
hepatitis
periarteritis nodosa
acute viral and bacterial infections
hypersensitivity reactions
recent vaccinations
