Among the significant difference, one is that this treatment weakens the immune system that increases the chances of getting a fungal infection.

Many fungal infections are called opportunistic infections, as they generally affect people with weak immune systems. As HIV weakens the immune system, it is more prone to have some types of fungal infections, like coccidioidomycosis, histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis, and pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP).
