The 18067 C>T polymorphism of XRCC3 gene has been considered to be implicated in the development of cervical and ovarian cancers, but the results are inconsistent. Thus, we conducted a meta-analysis to assess the association of XRCC3 18067 C>T polymorphism with risk of cervical and ovarian cancers. All studies on the association of XRCC3 18067 C>T polymorphism with cervical and ovarian cancers risk were retrieved. Finally, a total of 17 studies including 10 studies with 5,637 cases and 10,057 controls on ovarian cancer and 7 studies with 1,112 cases and 1,233 controls on cervical cancer were selected. Overall, pooled results showed that the XRCC3 18067 C>T polymorphism was significantly associated with increased risk of ovarian cancer (TC vs. CC: OR = 0.904, 95% CI = 0.841–0.972, p = 0.006; TT + TC vs. CC: OR = 0.914, 95% CI = 0.853–0.979, p = 0.010) and cervical cancer (TC vs. CC: OR = 1.00, 95% CI = 1.066–1.585, p = 0.009). Further subgroup analysis by ethnicity revealed an increased risk of cervical and ovarian cancer in Asians and Caucasians, respectively. The present meta-analysis inconsistent with the previous meta-analysis suggests that the XRCC3 18067 C>T polymorphism might be implicated in the pathogenesis of cervical and ovarian cancers.
