Hi,

Thank you for the query.

Atopic dermatitis from childhood is not associated with leukemia or any other cancer. You can stop worrying about it. If there is a family history of leukemia, check out the previous records of his mother what type of leukemia did she die from. That shall throw more light.

Let me know if you have any more concerns.

All the best.
