The existence of broken pseudo-spin symmetry in the Pb nucleus has been studied in the relativistic mean field approach using realistic Lagrangian parameters. Its relationship to spin orbit splitting and the vanishingly small surface delta character of the mean spin orbit potential are investigated. In the 208Pb nucleus the broken pseudo-spin doublets are found to exist above the neutron (proton) Fermi surfaces.
