General & Family Physician 's  Response
Thickening of the gallbladder wall is a relatively frequent finding at diagnostic imaging studies. 
Historically, a thick-walled gallbladder has been regarded as proof of primary gallbladder disease, and it is a well-known hallmark feature of acute cholecystitis
The finding itself, however, is non-specific and can be found in a wide range of gallbladder diseases and extracholecystic pathological conditions.
treatment depends upon the cause and presence of symptoms.
Your brother is suffering from acute hepatitis and is being managed well by the doctors in the hospital.
Since you have not furnished any details of CT scan or other reports,it is very difficult to comment upon the treatment.
It will be better for you to wait and watch and have faith in your treating doctors.
