The blood clot that sent Hillary Clinton to the hospital on Sunday is located between her brain and her skull behind her right ear, it was revealed this afternoon.
The Secretary of State's doctors say they found the clot in a large vein in her head - though it is in a blood vessel that runs across the surface of her brain and is not in the brain itself.
Doctors said Clinton has suffered no brain damage or stroke and that she is expected to make a full recovery.
In all other aspects of her recovery, the Secretary is making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff,' Drs Lisa Bardack and Gigi El-Bayoumi said in a statement.
A distraught-looking Chelsea Clinton visited her mother in the hospital this afternoon as she recovered from the clot, which stems from a concussion earlier this months.
'In the course of a routine follow-up MRI on Sunday, 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. It did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage.
