In brief: Type of partial sz
Comes from frontal lobe.
Several different types. Sometimes looks like a "fencing" posture. More common during sleep. Often difficult to control with anti-seizure meds. Sometimes requires surgery for treatment.

One thing the frontal lobe seizures have in common is they tend to spread rapidly as compared with most temproal lobe seizures. Other symptoms may include, episodic rage, fear, eye deviation to the side, and even genital manipulation during sleep.

In brief: Location of onset
Seizures are either generalized and start all over the brain, or they are partial and begin in a specific portion or focus in the brain.
If the onset is found to be from the frontal lobes of the brain, the condition is partial with frontal focus or frontal seizures.
