Hi!
Children with Down syndrome do at times have visual hallucinations. Get her kidney and liver function evaluated. A deranged kidney or liver can cause these problems too. It could just be that she enjoys playing with make belief friends. However, to assume this your niece would need a psychiatric evaluation. Please consult her treating doctor.
Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
