Perl processing of an XML file

Hello,
an xml file contains user records like:

<user>
<account_type>EXTERNAL</account_type>
<primary_id>BRMNTN62M16A944E</primary_id>
<first_name>John</first_name>
<last_name>Doe</last_name>

...other fields...

<user_identifier>
<id_type desc="Additional">02</id_type>
<value>john.doe@mymail.com</value>
</user_identifier>

...other fields...

</user>
it happens that some records have the SAME <primary_id> but the <value> of the <user_identifier> of <type> 02 (see above) have a value different than "<first_name>.<last_name>@mymail.com"
is it possible individuating & suppressing all and only these <user> records?
Thanks a lot,
Fabiano
