Washington, DC – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is under observation in a New York hospital after being admitted suffering from a blood clot which is “between the brain and the skull behind the right ear,” according to doctors.

The statement released by the US State Department, citing Dr. Lisa Bardack, Mt. Kisco Medical Group, and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi, George Washington University, said, “In the course of a routine follow-up MRI on Sunday, the scan revealed that a right transverse sinus venous thrombosis had formed. This is a clot in the vein that is situated in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.  It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage.”

The doctors further explained, “To help dissolve this clot, her medical team began treating the Secretary with blood thinners. She will be released once the medication dose has been established.”

“In all other aspects of her recovery, the Secretary is making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff,” the statement concluded.

Earlier this month Clinton suffered a concussion after fainting and falling down. The State Department had noted on Sunday that she wa being treated with anti-clotting drugs and will remain in hospital for at least 48 hours.

“She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours,” he said, adding, “They will determine if any further action is required.” her spokesman Philippe Reines said.

Secretary Clinton, 65, is due to stand down before President Barack Obama formally begins his second term in January. At the time of her faint, she was reported to have had a stomach virus and to have passed out after becoming dehydrated.
