Are some symptoms more severe in Acute Myeloid Leukemia than Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia?

Bleeding is often more pronounced in children with AML. This is because there are not enough platelets in the blood, called thrombocytopenia. Also, bleeding is more severe because the blood cannot clot properly. This is called coagulopathy associated with AML. Infections and any of the symptoms related to hyperleukocytosis can also be more pronounced in children with AML.
