Remove duplicate nodes in DOM

I am using the DOM API for a random XML operation and have a
which contains the following 3 nodes (All element nodes):
<abc> <def>1</def> </abc> <abc> <def>2</def> </abc> <abc> <def>1</def> </abc>
In this list, I want to remove the duplicate node i.e. Node number 3. Does any one have any clues on how can I do the same?
Thanks in advance.
