Medical Definition of partial seizure
Note: When a partial seizure occurs without a loss of consciousness it is called a simple partial seizure. When a partial seizure impairs consciousness it is called a complex partial seizure.Some partial seizures are so mild, a person may merely twitch and not lose consciousness.— Judy Foreman, The Boston Globe, 16 Dec. 2003
