Spanish term or phrase: Leg.
This appears after the name of a signatory of a certificate of good standing issued by the Ministry of Health in Argentina, and is followed by a 6-digit number. It appears to be some kind of registration number, but what does ‘Leg.’ stand for?

It appears as:

[person’s name]
Leg. 123.456

Thanks in advance for any insight.

medical record [registration number]


Explanation:
See Taña's great reference work below. You may want to tweak it, Rebecca, but this is more or less the idea, I believe.

The terms medical record, health record, and medical chart are used somewhat interchangeably to describe the systematic documentation of a single patient's medical history and care across time within one particular health care provider's jurisdiction.[1] The medical record includes a variety of types of "notes" entered over time by health care professionals, recording observations and administration of drugs and therapies, orders for the administration of drugs and therapies, test results, x-rays, reports, etc. The maintenance of complete and accurate medical records is a requirement of health care providers and is generally enforced as a licensing or certification prerequisite.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks Robert for all your help and research. I had more or less ruled out legajo because it didn't seem to fit the context, it looked like a registration number of some kind and I wouldn't expect a medical record number to be included in a government official's ID stamp. However, perhaps a solution like Reg. for registration number would work in this context.
