In brief: It depends

Temporal lobe epilepsy is an old term for a partial seizure that seems to come from a temporal lobe region of the brain.
It can be simple, complex, or can secondarily generalize. Initially a good quality eeg and MRI will help to localize and characterize the process. Initial trial of medication is appropriate, and consideration of epilepsy surgery is appropriate. Some cases are very difficult.
