Hi,
How is your brother? Were there imaging studies done? It is good that the initial diagnostic test results were normal.  Hepatomegaly or enlarged liver may be attributed to many conditions including alcohol use, congestive heart failure, hepatitis, glycogen storage disease, primary biliary cirrhosis, steatosis, Reye syndrome, and even malignancy. Fever may also suggest infectious cause and he may benefit from a referral to an infectious disease specialist. Take care and hope all is well. Do keep us posted and best regards.
