Partial seizures are those that start with focal manifestations. They are further divided into simple partial seizures, which do not impair consciousness, and complex partial seizures, which do. Each of these two types may remain localized or progress into a third type, partial seizures that become generalized. Partial seizures of all kinds usually indicate a structural lesion in the cerebral cortex, such as a scar, tumor, or infarction. The quality of such seizures helps the clinician to localize the causative lesion in the brain.
