So far, epidemiological studies have been performed to investigate the association of CDKN2A/B rs4977756 polymorphism and glioma risk. However, the results from different studies remain inconsistent. To clarify these conflicts and to quantitatively evaluate the effect of rs4977756 polymorphism on glioma risk, a meta-analysis was conducted using relevant published clinical studies about rs4977756 polymorphisms and glioma risk. Relevant studies concerning the association between rs4977756 polymorphism and risk of glioma were included in this meta-analysis. Odds ratio (OR) and 95 % confidence interval (CI) were calculated under fixed or random effects models when appropriate. Subgroup analyses were performed by race. This meta-analysis included 13 studies with a total of 8129 cases and 15,858 controls. The pooled results showed that there was an obvious association of CDKN2A/B rs4977756 polymorphism with risk of glioma in all four comparison models (dominant model/AG + GG vs. AA: OR = 1.36, 95 %CI = 1.20–1.54, p < 0.01; heterozygote comparison/AG vs. AA: OR = 1.31, 95 %CI = 1.12–1.53, p < 0.01; homozygote comparison/GG versus AA: OR = 1.49, 95 %CI = 1.36–1.64, p < 0.01; additive model/G vs. A: OR = 1.23, 95 %CI = 1.18–1.28, p < 0.01, respectively). For the subgroup analyses of ethnicities, similar results were observed in Caucasians. However, the association was not found between rs4977756 polymorphism and the risk of glioma in all models for the Asian studies. The CDKN2A/B rs4977756 polymorphism is obvious increase the risk of glioma in Caucasians. Future studies are needed to confirm the results in other ethnic populations.
