Mood Incongruent: Mood-incongruent delusions or hallucinations are inconsistent with the prevailing emotions -- like delusions of persecution or of thought insertion in either a manic or a depressive episode. Schizoaffective disorder and other psychoses like schizophrenia, delusional d/o, etc are the main ones i'd consider. Psychotic depression or mania usually have mood congruent delusions (going along w/mood).
