In brief: 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.
