On the basis of the documented racial disparities in ectopic pregnancy incidence and mortality we hypothesized that African-American women with ectopic pregnancy would be more likely than white women to have treatment failure with methotrexate. In this retrospective cohort study, a racial disparity in methotrexate effectiveness was not found, but a significant relationship between low socioeconomic status and methotrexate failure was demonstrated.
