In brief: Epilepsy

A number of patients develop partial seizures that secondarily proceed to generalized seizures after encephalitis associated with herpes simplex virus infection, as an example.
The specific type of epilepsy may vary from patient to patient and may vary based upon the cause of the encephalitis.
