Hillary Clinton Expected To Make Full Recovery, Doctors Say

The Washington Post:

The blood clot that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton suffered is inside her skull but did not result in a stroke or neurological damage, her spokesman said late Monday.

The clot was discovered during a routine MRI on Sunday as Clinton was recuperating from a fall and concussion, a statement from spokesman Philippe Reines and Clinton’s doctors said. The doctors predicted a full recovery.

“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,” the statement said. “It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage.”
