One of the criteria of medical treatment of methotrexate is good patient compliance. It appears that underprivileged inner-city populations do not comply with methotrexate treatment satisfactorily. Due to the risk of tubal rupture, women with poor compliance should be treated surgically. Approximately one in four women will experience tubal rupture. Accordingly, careful assessment regarding the patients’ ability to comply with treatment protocol before deciding on the treatment should be performed.
