In the presence of spin and pseudospin (p-spin) symmetries, the approximate analytical bound states of the Dirac equation for Hulthén-like potential including a Coulomb-like tensor interaction are obtained with any arbitrary spin–orbit coupling number κ using the Pekeris approximation. The generalized parametric Nikiforov–Uvarov (NU) method is used to obtain the energy eigenvalues and the corresponding wave functions in their closed forms. We show that tensor interaction removes degeneracies between spin and p-spin doublets. Some numerical results are also given.
