On which disease Liesel's brother died ?

We aren't given evidence of a specific diagnosis..... only the cough. We might infer Liesel's brother died of consumption (tuberculosis).
HOW IT HAPPENED
There was an intense spurt of coughing.
Almost an inspired spurt.
And soon after—nothing.
When the coughing stopped, there was nothing but the nothingness of life moving on with a shuffle, or a nearsilent twitch. A suddenness found its way onto his lips then, which were a corroded brown color and peeling, like old paint. In desperate need of redoing.
