My sister recently diagnosed with atopic dermatitis; she had mucoepidermoid carcinoma of mouth few years ago. Would there be any connection?

In brief: Not usually

Atopic dermatitis or eczema is usually related to environmental or food allergies and does not occur in relation to malignancy.
If the diagnosis of atopic dermatitis is in question, she should see a Dermatologist.

In brief: Possibly

Atopic dermatitis is basically an allergic reaction of the skin to an irritant.
Her carcinoma could have made her skin more sensitive to this type of a reaction.
