Immunology Cryoglobulins, Cold Agglutinins, Cold Abs (IgM)

Do all of these terms mean the same thing?

I'm studying Heme Path right now and I stumbled across Cold Igs (IgM) causing hemolytic anemia secondary to Mycoplasma pnem. and Mono.

I do remember Hep. C causing cryoglobulins, but I don't believe it causes hemolytic anemia.
