"Dream delirium" is a term to which some French psychiatrists apply to the group of psychoses characterized by delirium.

Delirium tremens is the prototype of this group and is considered to be essentially a prolonged dream. Fever deliria are also part of this group, because they are so closely related to dreams.

Although it is true that hallucination can be interpreted in the same way as dreams, this does not mean that deliria, schizophrenic hallucinations, and dreams are etiologically the same, as this term would imply.
