The olive is a smooth ovoid prominence just below the pons. It is located in the superior medulla, lateral to the pyramid and ventrolateral sulcus.
The hypoglossal nerve and ventrolateral sulcus separates it from the pyramid. The posterolateral sulcus of the spinal cord separates the olive from the inferior cerebellar peduncle, which forms the lateral surface of the medulla.
