The blood clot plaguing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she recovers from a reported concussion is located in a vein between her brain and her skull — behind her right ear.

Here's the full statement from her doctors:

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. To help dissolve this clot, her medical team began treating the Secretary with blood thinners. She will be released once the medication dose has been established. 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.
— Dr. Lisa Bardack, Mt. Kisco Medical Group, and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi, George Washington University

The medical statement came as other "experts" were speculating that the clot was probably in her leg.

Clinton had been skewered by skeptics who accused her of faking a concussion to dodge testifying about the terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.
