U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was hospitalized at New York Presbyterian Hospital after doctors found a blood clot during an examination related to a concussion she suffered in early December.
Clinton, 65, is expected to remain at the hospital for the next 48 hours so physicians can evaluate her.
"Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion," said Philippe Reines, deputy assistant secretary of state, in a statement.
"They will determine if any further action is required."
Clinton is soon due to end her term as Secretary.
