Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was admitted to a hospital in New York after doctors discovered a blood clot, believed to have stemmed from a concussion she suffered earlier in December.

According to Clinton's spokesman Philippe Reines, the clot was found during a follow-up exam on Sunday.  Clinton is being treated with anti-coagulants.

Clinton is now at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, while doctors monitor her condition and the medication for the next 48 hours.  Reines says doctors are also monitoring Clinton for "other issues associated with her concussion."
