Hillary Clinton has been hospitalized.
Secretary of State and former First Lady Hillary Clinton is in the hospital.
During a follow-up exam, doctors discovered a blood clot stemming from a concussion she suffered earlier this month. She’s been admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital.
Her spokesman says the clot is being treated with anti-coagulants and she is expected to stay in the hospital for the next 48 hours for observation.
The Secretary of State was admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital on Sunday after doctors found a blood clot during an exam related to the concussion she suffered during a fall earlier this month, CNN reports.
"Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion," Philippe Reines, deputy assistant secretary of state, said Sunday. "They will determine if any further action is required."
She's being treated with anti-coagulants and is expected to be hospitalized for 48 hours so she can be monitored.
Clinton, 65, suffered a concussion when she passed out and fell in her Washington, D.C., home. Reports at the time said dehydration suffered after a trip the former first lady took to Europe was the cause of her fall.
Clinton, who was recently named one of Barbara Walters's 10 most-fascinating people of 2012, plans to step down from her secretary post early next year.
