← Back to: List of phobias

Pungophobia (from Latin pungo, "stab", "puncture") is the fear of getting stabbed. This fear is usually suffered by young children. It is usually caused by being accidentally stabbed or cut by a sharp object like a knife. Some sufferers may worry that other people may stab them, so they would avoid using knives or other pointed objects like a sharpened pencil.
