The ICD-10 reports that specific (isolated) phobias are related to highly specific situations such as proximity to particular animals, heights, thunder, darkness, flying, closed spaces, eating certain foods, dentistry, the sight of blood, or injury and the fear of exposure to specific diseases. These phobias usually arise in childhood or early adulthood and can persist for decades if untreated. Social phobia (DSM-IV 1994); Social phobias (ICD-10 1992) The ICD-10 informs us that social phobias often start in adolescence and are centred around a fear of scrutiny by other people in comparatively small groups, leading to avoidance of social situations.

Anxiety is almost invariably felt immediately on confronting the phobic stimulus, and the level of anxiety or fear usually varies as a function of both the degree of proximity to the phobic stimulus and the degree to which escape from the phobic stimulus is limited. Adults with this disorder recognise that the phobia is excessive or unreasonable.
