The integrated test for Down's syndrome (nuchal+PAPPA+triple test) has given a low risk result for Down's syndrome, but the triple test component has shown a high risk result. What is the medical significance of this?

There isn't a particular medical significance for this, as the individual components of the screening tests may give-on their own-medium, high and low risk results but when combined an overall low risk (<1:250 risk). The most important advice we can give is for you to consider the final (overall)risk before making a decision on invasive testing.
