In brief: Bronchitis
Bronchitis is the most common cause of coughing up blood (hemoptysis), and if there is a bacterial or viral infection causing the bronchitis, this can be associated with high fever.
There are other possibilities for coughing up blood; the child needs to see their family physician or pediatrician to rule out other more serious causes.
