for k=1:size(B,1)
     if isequal(B(k:k+1,:),A)


Thanks for the response,

 but i think there must be a simple solution as
for the vector we have 
B(ismember(B,A)) = [];
it works for the vector, i think there should be a solution for the matrix

thanks second one working gud

in your case:

B = randi(100,10,62);
A = B(4:5,:);
B(end,:) = A(1,:);     % your data
[a,ii] = ismember(B,A,'rows');
iii = 1:size(A,1);
i1 = strfind(ii(:)',iii) + iii - 1;
B(i1,:) = [];


sorry it is not working
