67th US Secretary of State serving in the administration of President Barack Obama,Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, was hospitalized Sunday,30th December 2012, after doctors discovered a blood clot. This became known as the ex-senator’s spokesman revealed to the media.
According to reports,she is currently at New York Presbyterian Hospital where she will remain for the next two days so doctors can monitor her condition and treat her with anticoagulants- a substance which prevents clotting of blood.
The clot was discovered during a follow-up exam related to a concussion she suffered this month.
Clinton’s spokesman did not specify where the clot was discovered. Clinton suffered a concussion earlier this month after she fainted due to dehydration.
