    To evaluate the association between angiotensinogen (AGT) gene polymorphism and the risk of Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP)/Henoch-Schönlein purpura nephritis (HSPN) we searched the eligible studies through Pub Med, Embase, Cochrane, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) databases according to predefined criteria. A random-effects model was used to calculate the combined odds ratios (ORs) and its corresponding 95% confidence interval (CI). Five studies were recruited for the analysis of the association between AGT M235T gene polymorphism and HSP/HSPN risk. M allele was associated with lower risk of HSP in adult (p = 0.050), TT genotype was associated with the susceptibility to HSP in adult (p = 0.039). AGT M235T gene polymorphism was not associated with HSP risk in children. No marked association was observed between AGT M235T gene polymorphism and HSPN risk. No evidence of publication bias was observed. In conclusion, M allele might be a protective factor against the HSP risk in adult, TT genotype might be a risk factor for the susceptibility to HSP in adult. However, further larger studies should be performed in the future.
