Abstract

Blood-injury-injection phobia (BIIP) is characterised by a strong tendency to faint when exposed to phobic stimuli. Patients with BIIP often exhibit dental anxiety and may deliberately avoid dental treatment. The dental anxiety in BIIP does not respond to conventional techniques as just relaxation increases the likelihood of fainting. It is important for dentists to be aware of this condition since it requires specific management.
