In brief: They need monitoring
Im assuming you mean anti fungal pills.
Most commonly they can cause liver problems in some folks, so it is recommended you get baseline labs and then have blood drawn periodically while on them to monitor for any problems.

In brief: Depends...
...On the disease.
If you are talking about a fungus infection of the toenails, the anti-fungal tablets used to treat it can affect the liver in some cases. Most doctors "watch" the liver with lab tests during treatment. If that is not what you are talking about, i'll need to know the specific disease and the specific medication.
