Complex partial seizure disorder

Complex partial seizure disorder: Introduction

Complex partial seizure disorder: Complex partial seizure disorder is an electrical disturbance that originates in only one part of the brain and resulting in symptoms related to the body functions or parts that are controlled by that part of the brain. Partial seizures where the patient has altered consciousness are called complex partial seizures. During a simple partial seizure movement, sensations, feelings or emotions may be affected. Partial seizures may spread to other parts of the brain and are then called generalized seizures. These seizures usually only last a few minutes. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Complex partial seizure disorder is available below.
