In brief: IgI not an antibody

Igi is not a type of antibody as is iga, igm, igd, IG e .
The term igi has been used to represent the intermediate portion of any one of these antibody types. If your question is.. What problems come from high IgG anti-cardiolipin then the answer is hypercoagulation. This mean increased ability of your blood to clot.
