In brief: Complex partial sz

I think you may be referring to complex partial seizures and those that secondarily generalize.
It is very common to have seizures that start in one area of the brain with loss of awareness followed by spreading to involve the whole brain. It is called complex partial epilepsy with secondary generalization. Hope that helps answer your question.
