How often do small seizures lead to a grand mal?

In brief: Complex partial szs.

Focal seizures can often generalize and cause a convulsion.
This is characteristic of complex partial seizures, which can start on one side of the brain and generalize. Drugs to control epilepsy will often suppress the evolution to a grand mal event.
