microphobia 

PSYCHOLOGY

Morbid fear of small things

This rates among the 10 silliest “phobias”, right alongside auroraphobia–morbid fear of the Northern lights and xanthophobia—morbid fear of the colour yellow. Just because one can juxtapose two classic roots (here, micro-, Greek, small, and phobia), doesn’t mean one should. One doubts this term has ever been used in a clinical setting or that it is a proper phobia.
