Ok thanks for your reply, but I forgot to mention this is for one dimension cell arrays in my case.

Suppose you have a cell array
A = {1,2,3,4,5};
and you extract a specific element of this array
a = A(4);
then, for a general case, you can find its index back using
idx = find(cellfun(@(x) isequal(x,a{:}), A))
if all the elements of A are scalar, then you can also write
idx = find([A{:}]==a{1});
