I'm sure it looks as odd and your description sounds! There may be insects at work (look closely at the undersides of leaves and look for webbing on the stems) or it might be that a fungal or bacterial disease is causing the problem. Probably the best approach is to prune the plant back to healthy tissue. It sounds as though you'll lose a third to a half of your plant but it's a good way to remove the problem from your garden and encourage healthy new growth. I doubt that the affected part will ever leaf out again so pruning is probably your best option. Good luck with your plant!
