UPDATE: CNN is now reporting that Hillary Clinton has been hospitalized at New York Presbyterian for a blood clot, location unknown, that was discovered during a routine follow-up exam, stemming from a concussion she suffered on December 15th.
This is a different information than had been reported earlier by the Associated Press which stated Clinton had a blood clot on her brain.
Her spokesperson Phillipe Reines has not indicated where the “formed blood clot” is located. She is being treated with anti-coagulants and will be under observation for 48 hours. Reines’ statement also indicated that doctors are assessing her condition as required.
Dr. Keith Black, a neurosurgeon at Cedar Sinai Hospital, also in New York City, who was interviewed by CNN, suspects that Clinton may have developed a “deep venous thrombosis, which is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside a part of the body.” According to Black, a venous thrombosis usually forms in the lower leg and thigh.
The AP story about Clinton earlier this evening indicates that she is being treated with anti-coagulants. She has been admitted to New York Presbyterian hospital. Her spokesman Phillip Reines was quoted about her condition:
Reines says doctors will continue to assess Clinton’s condition, “including other issues associated with her concussion.”
He also said she would be under observation for 48 hours.
