Objective: The aim of this meta-analysis was to assess the methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene C677T polymorphisms and esophageal cancer susceptibility in Chinese Han population. Materials and Methods: The databases of PubMed, MEDLINE, Wanfang, and CNIK was electronic searched to find the case–control or cohort study about the relationship between MTHFR gene C677T polymorphisms and esophageal cancer susceptibility in Chinese Han population. The odds ratio (OR) was used to assess the relationship between CC, CT, and TT genotype and esophageal cancer risk. The data were pooled using Stata 11.0 software. Results: Eight articles included 1752 esophageal cancer and 2363 controls were found and included in this meta-analysis. The pooled OR was 1.86 with its 95% confidence interval of 1.21–2.86 and 1.62 with its 95% confidence interval of 1.15–2.27 for TT versus CC and CT versus CC model which indicated that people with TT OR CT genotype significant increase the risk of developing esophageal cancer. Conclusion: Esophageal cancer risk was significantly increased in people with TT/CT genotype of MTHFR gene.
