In this work we investigate the X(3872) meson with quantum numbers in the framework of the thermal QCD sum rules method. We use a diquark-antidiquark current with the corresponding quantum numbers and calculate the two-point correlation function including contributions of non-perturbative condensates up to six dimensions. Analysis of the obtained thermal sum rule allows us to study contributions of a medium to the mass and coupling constant of the X(3872) resonance. Our numerical calculations demonstrate that the mass and the meson-current coupling constant are insensitive to the variation of temperature up to MeV; however, after this point, they start to fall by increasing the temperature. At deconfinement temperature, the meson-current coupling constants attain roughly to 34% of the vacuum value.
