Seizures of the speech region lead to dysphasic symptoms while seizures with speech disturbance (vocalization or arrest of speech) are of unspecific location. Whether seizures associated only with autonomic symptoms exist is questionable, as is their localizational correlate. JANZ Common to all simple focal seizures is that consciousness is initially not impaired, which is why the patients are able to describe the nature of the focal symptoms from their own experience. Only when the discharge becomes secondarily generalized or when generalized convulsions occur is consciousness extinguished.

The clinical symptoms are characterized by epigastric, olfactory, and gustatory auras, by stereotype oral automatisms, and by vegetative symptoms. The seizures are as a rule associated with disturbances of consciousness and terminate in postictal cloudy states with slow reorientation. Complex focal seizures as a rule recur in a cycloleptic manner (in periodic clusters): After seizure-free intervals of days to weeks several seizures or series of seizures occur in the course of a few days. There are undoubtedly also states which can be considered as status epilepticus of complex focal seizures, in which seizures or seizure fragments follow each other continuously or discontinuously over a prolonged period (GAsTAuTet al.
