Hillary Clinton has been released from hospital after being treated for a blood clot near her brain.

The US Secretary of State was seen leaving New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Wednesday evening, accompanied by her husband, former US president Bill Clinton.

She had developed the blood clot behind her ear after she was concussed following a fall last month. The clot was treated with blood thinners.

With her hair scraped back into a tight ponytail and wearing sunglasses, she walked unaided into a black SUV, and was followed by husband Bill, staff and a security detail.

Her deputy assistant secretary of state, Philippe Reines, said she was making "good progress" after being admitted on Sunday.

"Her medical team advised her that she is making good progress on all fronts, and they are confident she will make a full recovery," he said. "She’s eager to get back to the office."

A State Department spokesperson told the New York Daily News she had been in contact with staffers, saying "she's been quite active on the phone with all of us."

Clinton had not been seen in public since 7 December.
