Whether or not a child or anyone gets hallucinations depends on what virus is present and where. Meningitis does fit what happened with your son, and since it's at the brain/spinal cord, it will cause him to hallucinate. Just watch him and make sure it doesn't get any worse, and if it does take him to the ER soon. Good luck.
