Myeloid and lymphoid are components of certain organs in the body. Myeloid is an organ that originated in the bone marrow, while lymphoid refers to the lymph or the lymphatic system.

Acute or chronic myeloid leukemia can be used to refer to a disease originating in the bone marrow that affects the myeloid line of blood cell, while acute or chronic lymphoid leukemia is used to refer to disease in the lymphatic system, it affects the lymphoid line of a blood cell.

Acute lymphoid leukemia is common amongst children and adolescents up to 16 years of age, while Acute myeloid is common amongst older adults. They have similar symptoms this includes fever, fatigue, night sweats, frequent infections, and weight loss.

If in case you are not aware of these terms, these are normally used for people who are diagnosed with leukemia, which is the cancer of the blood. Lymphoid is known to start in the white blood cells, particularly the lymphocytes that can be found in the bone marrow.

Myeloid is the type of leukemia that may also start in the white blood cells but will show that leukemia may also start from the platelets and the red blood cells. There are various treatments that are available for people who may be diagnosed with either type of leukemia, but it is important that the condition will be detected earlier so that a cure is more possible. It will be harder to treat those who would be diagnosed during the latter stages of the disease.
