In brief: Frontal lobe seizure
Frontal lobe epilepsy (fle) refers to epilepsy where the seizure focus is located in the frontal lobes.
Because the frontal lobes are involved in so many functions the symptoms of fle can be very varied and can include motor, emotional and cognitive symptoms. Fle can also be difficult to diagnose. See http://www.Epilepsy.Com/epilepsy/epilepsy_frontallobe for more information.

To expand upon this, the reason it is difficult to diagnosis some frontal lone seizures has to do with the fact that a large portion of the undersurface of the frontal lobe is a great distance from where we are able to place recording electrodes (nasopharyngeal and sphenoid electrodes can be used to try to overcome the lack of access to the undersurface.
