Abstract: Spin and pseudospin symmetries of the Dirac equation for a Hulthén potential with a novel tensor interaction, that is, a combination of the Coulomb and Yukawa potentials, are investigated using the Nikiforov-Uvarov method. The bound-state energy spectra and the radial wave functions are approximately obtained in the case of spin and pseudospin symmetries. The tensor interactions and the degeneracy-removing role are presented in details.
