Hillary Clinton hospitalized with blood clot

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has been admitted to a New York hospital after the discovery of a blood clot stemming from the concussion she sustained earlier this month.
    
Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines says her doctors discovered the clot during a follow-up exam Sunday. Reines says Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants.
    
Clinton was admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital so doctors can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours.
    
Reines says doctors will continue to assess Clinton's condition, "including other issues associated with her concussion."
