Objective: One hundred fifty-four patients with tubal ectopic pregnancy who were diagnosed with ectopic pregnancy and treated were retrospectively examined. Results: When the neutrophil lymphocyte ratios (NLRs) were compared between the two groups, the mean NLR values were 5.88±4.66 and 3.20±4.80 in the ruptured and unruptured groups, respectively, and the results were statistically significant (p=0.001). Similarly, the mean platelet lymphocyte ratio (PLR) values were 148.14±75.59 and 118.79±54.08 in the ruptured and unruptured groups, respectively, and the results were statistically significant (p=0.026). A statistically significant difference was found between the levels of beta human chorionic gonadotropin, white blood cell, PLR, and NLR in accordance with the presence of rupture in the patients (p<0.05), and the results of patients with ruptured ectopic pregnancy were found to be higher. The ratio of rupture risk was 4.5 times higher in patients with a PLR of ?166.6, whereas it was 6.9 times higher in patients with an NLR of ?4. Conclusion: We believe that the inflammatory markers of NLR and PLR could be used for the prediction of rupture.
