Degree of neural system impairment and affected area determine the severity and pattern of symptoms. Patients might experience sensory, motor, or both signs and symptoms. About 60 of epileptic patients suffer from partial type. It is estimated that up to 30 of epilepsy cases would not be controlled adequately despite sufficient and proper management.
