Cavernous sinus thrombosis is a very rare, life-threatening condition that can affect adults and children. In cavernous sinus thrombosis, a blood clot blocks a vein that runs through a hollow space underneath the brain and behind the eye sockets. These veins carry blood from the face and head back to the heart. The cause of cavernous sinus thrombosis is usually an infection. But other factors may play a role. Cavernous sinus thrombosis is a serious condition. It causes death in up to 30% of cases.
In fact Secretary Clinton's neurologist at Columbia, who I heard from yesterday, is a top national expert on strokes, brain clots, bleeds, and head trauma. She couldn't be in better hands. Her condition, Right Transverse Sinus Thrombosis, is a fancy term for a blood clot forming in one of the main sinuses (a drain) of the brain. This clot can lead to brain swelling or a stroke, and it is certainly life threatening.

Until the campaign, or rather Ms. Clinton herself, admit to this, this line of thinking is about as far as we can, with any hope of accuracy, take it.
If this is the case, only if, she should give some serious thought to dropping out. Is ambition, even as grand an ambition as the White House, worth your health, or even your life?
Personally, I don't think so. But she's the only one who can answer that.

Correct me if I am wrong, but this appears to be a Fox News article posted in to an email.
It does not mean she is actually suffering from it. More of a "hey, look at what they said about you" sort of email.
