Abstract

Aim Methotrexate (MTX) treatment at a dose of 50 mg/m(2) of body surface area (BSA) is an effective and widely used treatment method in ectopic pregnancy. However, there is a limited number of studies investigating lower MTX doses. In this study, we aimed to investigate the efficacy of lower MTX doses in the treatment of ectopic pregnancy.
