Answer

Secondary generalized seizures often begin with an aura that evolves into a complex focal seizure and then into a generalized tonic-clonic seizure. However, a complex focal seizure may evolve into a generalized tonic-clonic seizure without a preceding aura, or an aura may evolve into a generalized tonic-clonic seizure without an obvious complex focal seizure.
