PSYCHIATRY

Morbid fear of the colour yellow.  

This rates among the top 10 silliest “phobias” one can find on phobia lists. Just because one can juxtapose two classic Greek or Latin roots doesn’t mean one should. I doubt this term has ever been used clinically, and further doubt that psychiatrists would regard it as a proper phobia.
