I had this real creepy feeling that, even thought Sai said he had died, Kabuto is Sai's older brother. I have a few reasons to why I think that, even though I don't like the idea. Kabuto getting all lovey-dovey big brother freakd me out beyond all belief.
But I only base my suspicions on a few bits of information from the series, and based on that, for all I know, Kimimaro could be the older brother of Sai. He happens to have straight white hair and is dead, so that could qualify him.
When Team 7 found Sai's artbook, they identified a boy with white hair that had apparently died somehow as Sai's older brother. Kabuto was found as a child as the only survivor of the battle of Kikyo Pass, if my information is correct, and it would be easy to declare someone KIA if their body isn't found at the battle they were in, theoretically. When Kabuto was found and taken to Konoha (meaning that the other faction didn't get Kabuto back, assuming Kabuto was fighting in the battle, and was with the faction opposing Konoha), then they obviously didn't find his body.
Now, say Sai is not native Konoha. He is from someplace else. We are just saying, here, he could have been born and raised in Konoha, for all I know. But I don't. About as much that is known about Sai is known about Kabuto, remember. Now, say Sai is also brought in from Konoha from this Villiage Hidden Elsewhere, later than Kabuto, and doesn't know he is alive. Kabuto was also taken 'as a child'. It is never stated exactly when. He could have been two, he could have been 14. Not likely that old, he had been participating in the Chuunin Exams for 4 years at the time of introduction at age 19, giving him only a year to gradutate from the academy and become a Genin, and putting in that he was pretending to be talentless, it would have been suspicious and most likely took longer. Kabuto, if he is Sai's older brother, might not know it himself. So when they met, nothing was said.
Now, "But why Kabuto?" you might ask if you read this far (congrats and thank you!). They said the boy in the artbook had white hair. So Sai obviously knew what his brother looked like. Kabuto has white-ish hair (omg so do half the quys in the series!). Still going with Sai is also foreign, it wouldn't be like they were raised in the same household. If they were, they would have recognized each other when they met during Oro's and Four-Tailed Naruto's fight. They say Sai is around Naruto's age, and if he is, then being ANBU at Naruto's age MIGHT put him at Jounin back in Part 1, whereas Kabuto was still technically Genin. So they WOULDN'T have met.
Now, if they were brothers separated at Kikyo Pass, Sai would have gotten away or was actually mistaken for dead or found later and taken to Konoha, while Kabuto was found alive and taken right away. But why don't they recognize each other? My bet is: they do. But remember, "You will be called Sai for now." Sai is a fake name. He could also be Yakushi for all we know. Yakushi Enter-Sai's-real-name-here. Honestly, if you worked for Orochimaru and just met your long-lost sibling, would you run at him/her with open arms? They, if they are siblings, must protect that secret, as it could be used against them. So they CAN't say anything, but knew the whole time.
Now to end either my crappiest or best theory yet: I HAVE THE COLD AND IT SUCKS BIG TIME. I'm so miserable! How does such a minor illness cause such suffering?
PS: If you have read this far, you've wasted your life reading what took me 30 minutes to think up and type, thank you for that. It makes me feel special .
Rightful owner of (meaning I stole them) Kabuto-kun's glasses, Kabuto's sash, Kabuto's hair tie, and Deidara's eye-scope.

Can't be Kimimaro... I agree. Let's not forget the freakish bone changing thing.
Kabuto being Sai's brother is plausible and indeed logical when put as you said it howdy. Especially when considering Kabuto was then raised by the village's head medic and he would learn a different talent than Sai, who is raised by a different set of parents.
My theory about Sai's brother is so simple- he's dead. My good reasoning behind it..
Why would it be so odd for his brother not to be dead. Look at how many Naruto characters are orphaned or missing family members to death... Naruto, Sasuke, Kakashi, Neji, Gaara and his siblings, Iruka, Tsunade.. the list goes on and those are characters that we know the story behind.
Death is no stranger in the Naruto-world. Speculation that surrounds Sai's missing/dead sibling is no different than how they dance around the 4th being Naruto's father.
It would make an interesting twist in events.. and you theory is one I would really welcome to toss that monkey wrench into the story. I'm giving you karma for posting such a well thought out post... and I will up the ante if this turns out to be truth and not a theory.
