This article was written in order to establish a clear difference between two common use terms, which are relevant to understand metabolic cell functions. Those terms are microbodies and microsomes; the first one is the only considered as a component of a living cell. Microsomes are the product of labs manipulating. Both components help us understand complex cellular mechanisms as xenobiotics processing and cell degeneration. An important aspect of this research is to find how wide the influence of the language is these terms were built. To full-fill these task its necessary to review most of the basic program books through articles ads specialist bibliography. Terms that appear to be synonyms causes confusion and cant be accepted because knowledge is always upgraded so as the new generations of medical professionals.
Keywords: Microbodies, Microsomes, Xenobiotics, Synonyms.
