A fear of buttons. Sufferers are usually disgusted by the sight of them and wash their skin when it comes into contact with a button.

They will have no clothes with buttons on and some even avoid toggles, press studs and other clothes fasteners.

In some extreme cases, the sufferer finds it difficult to even say or write the word 'button'.
