Medical - Medical (general) / blood count report form
French term or phrase: The abbreviation "TE"
The abbreviation appears on a blood count report form and is followed by a space for the lab/doctor to write in the results. Above this abbreviation on the list are platelets, white blood cells, lymphocytes, monocytes, etc. each with a space after them for writing in the results. Could it be "Thromboembolism (TE)"? The result was "négatif" if that helps.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks MAllaqui.

Asker: That's okay that you answered in French. I'm just still unsure. TE is above two other abbreviations that I now know to be "bleeding time" and "partial thromboplastin time test". Does "Essential thrombocythemia work in this context?
