Delusogender is a neurogender that can be described as a subset of posigender, in which someone's gender is influenced by delusions they experience/have experienced. However, it can be used by anyone who experiences delusions, not limited to individuals with schizophrenia. The "gender" part of delusogender can be substituted to fit the gender identity that a person identifies with in their delusional state, such as delusoboy, delusogirl, etc. Delusogender is also an umbrella term for the more specific types of it.

- Holidelusogender, in which someone's gender is defined/influenced by delusions of being divine, holy, demonic, angelic, or godly.
- Grandelusogender, in which someone's gender is defined/influenced by delusions of grandeur.
- Paradelusogender, in which someone's gender is defined/influenced by paranoid delusions.
- Deluattachgender, in which someone's gender is influenced by delusional attachments and/or by the experience of having delusional attachments.
