Cryofibrinogenemia may be primary or secondary (due to tumors, necrosis, acute and chronic inflamation and lymphoproliferative and autoimmune disorders). Although cryofibrinogenemia is common in IgA nephropathy, its relationship to IgA antibodies reactive with fibronectin remains unknown as does its relationship to IgA rheumatoid factor and polymeric IgA.

All specimens should be obtained aseptically by venipuncture. Patients
must be fasting for cryoglobulin testing. Collect the blood specimen
in a pre-warmed (37 C) vacutainer tube (lavender-top (EDTA)
for plasma). Immediately after collection, continuously maintain
vacutainer tubes at 37 C for 1 hour, followed by
centrifugation maintaining 37 C. Transfer the sample
into a plastic vial labeled as plasma. Once separated from clot or
cells, sample is sent ambient.
