A bstractCombined results are reported from searches for a fermiophobic Higgs boson in the γγ, WW, and ZZ decay modes in proton-proton collisions at $ \sqrt {s} = 7 $ TeV. The explored Higgs boson mass range is 110–300 GeV. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 4.9–5.1 fb−1. A fermiophobic Higgs boson is excluded at 95% confidence level in the mass range 110–194 GeV, and at 99% confidence level in the mass ranges 110–124.5 GeV, 127–147.5 GeV, and 155–180 GeV.
