Definition

A disorder characterized by recurrent partial seizures marked by impairment of cognition; During the seizure the individual may experience a wide variety of psychic phenomenon including formed hallucinations, illusions, deja vu, intense emotional feelings, confusion, and spatial disorientation; Focal motor activity, sensory alterations and AUTOMATISM may also occur; Complex partial seizures often originate from foci in one or both temporal lobes; The etiology may be idiopathic (cryptogenic partial complex epilepsy) or occur as a secondary manifestation of a focal cortical lesion (symptomatic partial complex epilepsy)----- (From Adams et al, Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp317-8)------
