Fear of things to the left side of the body.

Not to be confused with other fears concerned with the left, notably sinistrophobia which has a markedly similar meaning but concerns left-handedness and is not bodily oriented.

Levophobia has been noted as a typically right handed fear where the non dominant side feels irrationally vulnerable.  

Sufferers of this Phobia can be assumed to be displacing a deeper issue to a non threatening fear.  It is safe to say that the left side of the body may be at best a clue for the therapist to work from.

Sufferers may also display sinistrophobia but not necessarily visa-versa.  As with all psychological disorders the details and cause can vary greatly in detail from sufferer to sufferer.
