Thanks for posting your query.
The brain fever like meningitis or encephalitis can develop at any age. It needs an early treatment for complete cure and to prevent complications. It is life threatening if severe.
He needs to have a CSF examination for proper diagnosis so that he can get specific treatment according to the diagnosis. Please consult a neurophysician for the same.
I hope this answers your query.
