The word lymphocytic is simply an adjective used for the word lymphocyte. The word lymphocyte can be attributed to a kind of small white blood cell that has one round nucleus in the centre. Lymphocytes are found in the lymphatic system and they constitute about twenty-five per cent of the white blood cells. Lymphocytes are surrounded by a non granular cytoplasm which is a quite thin layer.

You can find three major types of lymphocytes which are natural killer cells(NK), T cells and B cells.

The adjective of the word is also often heard and you can use the term as is used in 'lymphatic leukemia'.
