A derogatory account is simply any tradeline or account reporting negative or adverse info.  Some examples are, collections, charge-offs, unpaid child support, judgments, wage garnishments, even accounts that are 120 days late (default time) and so on.

On TU and EX reports, they break things down into clear categories. Adverse Accounts (derogs) and Good Accounts. Even a single 30 day late is a derog, albeit far less of a derog than a collection or chargeoff.
