The group of chronic delusional psychosis systematized had multiple elaborations raised by the French and German psychiatry nineteenth and early twentieth century. Psychoses are characterized by permanent delusions. Are considered delusions not only the beliefs and conceptions by which express the themes of delirious fiction, namely persecution, grandeur, jealousy but also ideoafetivos phenomena in which the delirium takes body as intuitions, illusions, interpretations, hallucinations, imaginative and passionate exaltation. These delusions cannot be conceived as simple errors in judgment [1]. In nosography Kraepelin and later with the works of Bleuler, many of these delusions became part of schizophrenia. Meanwhile, France has remained true to the description of chronic delusions outside the group of schizophrenia. The diagnostic and therapeutic point of view, it is important to resume the classification of chronic delusional psychotic disorders proposed by the French nosography.
