Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. I have noted your son's symptoms. First of all, I would like to reassure you that normal MRI of brain rules out most serious problems of brain. Meningitits (or brain fever) can be diagnosed by doing lumbar puncture and examining the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). How long has he been having headache and vomiting? Does he have fever also? I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
