Can two MESH ID associated with two different sub type overlap or have same MESH ID .

For example

Acute M2 Myeloid Leukemia           C1879321    M2  D015470

Acute Undifferentiated Leukemia         C0280141    M0  D015456,D015470


This 

D015470

is same for both the subtype.

The answer is yes. In this case, the MeSH term is a more general term for the two more specific concepts. In general, mappings between ontologies are not always perfect 1:1 mappings.
