In brief: Cell type
Myelogenous arrive from different bone marrow cells called myeloid cells while lymphoid is lymphoid cells.
Actual difference is if they are acute or chronic

In brief: Cell type
The difference between these types of leukemia is the cell type they are derived from. Lymphocytic leukemias arise from cells in the bone marrow that give rise to the normal lymphocytes-a type of white blood cell.
Myelogenous leukemias arise from bone marrow cells that give rise to the other cell types in the bone marrow. Each of these types can occur in forms known as acute and chronic.
