In brief: Cryoglobulin

Cryoglobulins are antibodies that separate at low temperatures.
In some conditions certain types of abnormal antibodies are produced that basically clump together when they drop a little bit below normal body temperature. It can be caused by infections, autoimmune diseases, inflammation of vessels, and kidney disease among others.
