Background: In both high- and low-income nations, preterm premature membrane rupture is a substantial source of perinatal, neonatal, and maternal illness and mortality. Although the prevalence and associated variables of premature membrane rupture have been extensively studied in high-income countries, there is little locally generated evidence regarding these issues in Ethiopia, particularly in the study area. Objective: To identify determinates of premature rupture of membrane among women who gave birth at Tefera Hailu Memorial Hospital, Sekota, and Northern Ethiopia. Method: Unmatched case-control study design was conducted in Tefera Hailu Memorial Hospital to identify determinates of premature mature of membrane. Selecting controls were done using a straightforward random sample technique, while selecting cases was done using sequential sampling. Data were collected by five diploma midwives and two-degree holder midwives as supervisors. Face to-face interviewed with structured questionnaires were administered to collect data. Data were entered using Epi data version 3.1 and was analyzed using SPSS version 25 statistical software. Bivariable logistic regression model was fitted for each explanatory variable. Candidates for the multivariable logistic regression model were variables with a p-value in the bivariable analysis of less than 0.25. Less than 0.05 with a 95% confidence interval was regarded as a statistically significant association in a multivariable logistic regression AOR with P-value. Result: Lack of ANC [AOR=4.78; 95% CI: 1.34, 9.67], history of pregnancy pregnancy-induced [AOR=7.32; 95% CI: 2.35, 22.80]; history of PROM [AOR=3.64; 95% CI: 1.64, 8.12] and history of multiple pregnancies [AOR=7.62; 95% CI: 2.15, 9.05] were identified as significant determinants of PROM. Conclusion: Significant factors of PROM included the absence of ANC, a history of induced pregnancy, a history of PROM, and a history of numerous pregnancies.
