What is cryoglobulinemia?

Cryoglobulinemia is a medical condition that is caused by proteins called cryoglobulins, which are present in the blood. Cryoglobulins are abnormal proteins that by definition have the unusual property of precipitating from the serum when it is chilled in the laboratory and then dissolves back into the serum upon rewarming.

Cryoglobulins may or may not cause disease. Cryoglobulins can accompany another condition (such as dermatomyositis, multiple myeloma, or lymphoma) or be an isolated condition themselves, called cryoglobulinemia.

Comment from: Fused, 45-54 Female (Caregiver) Published: April 22

Our daughter was diagnosed with cryoglobulinemia vasculitis. She has lost the ability to use her hands, arms, and legs. The Doctor plans to use Rituxan. He is waiting for her antibodies to reach a certain level then he plans to start the chemo.
