"Brain Fever": I'm not at all sure what the term brain fever refers to. Fever is fever - an elevation of core body temperature. There are many reasons for fever. If you are referring to brain fever as a fever where the normal regulation of body temperature by the brain is out of whack, then that can happen by a variety of reasons. Could happen after a stroke, from an infection, tumor. The list is long.

Nothing anymore: "Brain fever" is not a term used now. Many, many years ago, it probably was an illness with fever and an altered state of consciousness, such as encephalitis. Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain, such as that caused by a brain infection. It may also have included meningitis, which is inflammation of the linings and the liquid around the brain. Symptoms might include headache and seizures.
