Blood on brain, rest ordered for Argentine leader
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - Doctors have ordered a month's rest for Argentina's president after they found blood on her brain due to a head injury.
President Cristina Fernandez's spokesman issued a statement on Saturday night saying she had suffered a previously undisclosed blow to the head on Aug 12.
Spokesman Alfredo Scoccimarro read the statement signed by the president's doctors saying they did a CAT scan of her brain after the head injury in August and found nothing wrong, and that afterward she had no symptoms.
The statement said problems surfaced on Saturday after Ms Fernandez, 60, went to a hospital for checks on an irregular heartbeat. Because she was suffering headaches, they looked at her skull again, too, and found a subdural hematoma.
