We solve the Dirac equation for Mie-type potential including a Coulomb-like tensor potential under spin and pseudospin symmetry limits with arbitrary spin–orbit coupling quantum number κ. The Nikiforov–Uvarov method is used to obtain analytical solutions of the Dirac equation. Since it is only the wave functions which are obtained in a closed exact form; as for the eigenvalues, only the eigenvalue equations have been given and they have been solved numerically. It is also shown that the degeneracy between spin doublets and pseudospin doublets is removed by tensor interaction.
